Listening to Snow is the title of a new exhibition of works by Michael Snow opening at the Art Museum, University of Toronto, Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, January 18, 3-5 pm, curated by Leora Belford.

Listening to Snow is a devoted-to-listening space, a music box, focusing on ideas and thoughts arising from a selection of Snow’s sounds. Composed and tuned, the exhibition manifests as one sonic experience from three sound installations [Diagonale (1988), Waiting Room (2000), Tap (1969-1972)], one screening [Solar Breath (Northern Caryatids) (2002)], two recordings [Falling Starts, W in the D (1975)], and a piano for Snow’s performance – all sharing the same acoustic space.

The exhibition is part of the Hart House’s centennial programming recognizing the special place the institution holds in Snow’s biography.”

The exhibition runs until March 21 and will also include a number of special events.
