The Audible Edge explores intersections of architecture and sound, inside and outside the gallery space.

The Audible Edge includes With Hidden Noise, a traveling exhibition of sound art projects, including works by Taylor Deupree, Jennie C. Jones, Pauline Oliveros, Andrea Parkins, Steve Peters, Steve Roden, Michael J. Schumacher, and Stephen Vitiello. With Hidden Noise is part of ICI’s Exhibitions in a Box series. Produced by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, this exhibition is curated by Stephen Vitiello.

The Audible Edge includes artists invited by the organizing team to participate in the exhibition, including J. Anthony Allen, Philip Blackburn, Mary Ellen Childs, Douglas Ewart, Douglas Geers, Beatrix*JAR, John Keston, Abinadi Meza, Ryan Wurst and Patrick Beseda.

The Audible Edge includes artworks by Berenice Abbott, Harold E. Edgerton, and Isamu Noguchi loaned from the permanent collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and artworks by Joseph Beuys and Katarina Fritsch loaned from the permanent collection of Walker Art Center.

The Audible Edge is sponsored by the Department of Art, the Katherine E. Nash Gallery and the School of Architecture at the University of Minnesota and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Financial support was provided by an Imagine Grant awarded by the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. With Hidden Noise is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation; and the ICI Board of Trustees.

Organizing Team
The Audible Edge was organized by a curatorial team that includes David Little, Curator and Head, Department of Photography and New Media at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; Lynn Lukkas, Associate Professor of Experimental and Media Arts; Jim Lutz, Lecturer in the School of Architecture; and Howard Oransky, Director of the Katherine E. Nash Gallery.

Katherine E. Nash Gallery Mission

The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. We believe the visual arts have the capacity to interpret, critique and expand on all of human experience. Our engagement with the visual arts helps us to discover who we are and understand our relationships to each other and society. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery will be a center of discourse on the practice of visual art and its relationship to culture and community -- a place where we examine our assumptions about the past and suggest possibilities for the future. The Nash Gallery will play an indispensible role in the educational development of students, faculty, staff and the community. http://nash.umn.edu/
