Artists on Art: Tom Lopez
Free with Museum Admission
Artists on Art highlights the expertise of artists working right here in our region. Each month, a local artist uses their own mediums, subjects, and processes to interpret an artwork on view in MOCA's exhibitions. These talks broaden and deepen the meaning of the works on view, and also give greater insight into the related practices of artists working in Northeast Ohio.
Sound artist and composer Tom Lopez will discuss the installation of Éliane Radigue’s 1970 composition, OMNHT, which is presented in INDUCTION. Lopez is Associate Professor of Computer Music and Digital Arts at the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, and is an award-winning composer and scholar of electronic music. In his experimental and traditional instrumentation, Lopez explores the architecture the relationships between sound, space, and the choreographed movement of performers. He has received numerous awards and his compositions and sound works have been featured throughout the United States. More information can be found at oberlin.edu/tom-lopez.
