Art Roundup: Week of August 21 – 27

Attend the opening reception for Ali Murtaza’s Perceptive Objects at 13 Bricks (633 E Broad St.) on Friday, August 21 from 4 – 10pm. The show features three pieces that represent the artist’s attempt to create a new generation of products that will inhabit our lives rather than “overtake” them (i.e. smart watches, tablets, smart phones and computers). The three pieces focus on some of the core features of Perceptive Objects: Sound Paintings, Infinite Heartbeats and Musical Minds. Click here for more information.


Head over to Sulfur Studios for Alex Davidson’s thesis exhibition, Breathing Room, on Friday, August 21 from 6 – 9pm. Davidson will project the visual component of his thesis as an installation exploring the role of lighting in defining three-dimensional spaces. By manipulating lighting, Davidson hopes to manipulate our perceptions of the space around us. Click here for more information.
