Joyous noise

Sound artist and performer Pamela Z lights up the Tang Museum’s fifth anniversary party in late October. Along with her installation/performance and tours of ongoing fall exhibitions—quirky ceramic sculpture, twentieth-century war propaganda, and the work of two modern-art trailblazers—the weekend included family fun, from costumes to “pumpkin carving as art.” Some provocative artists from prior Tang shows were also on hand to discuss their work and debate notions of “art as public space.” The Tang celebration will be capped by a conference organized by visiting artist Fred Wilson. “The College Museum: A Collision of Disciplines,
A Laboratory of Perception,“ to be held April 7–8, will feature internationally recognized scholars, artists, museum directors, and curators.
