Join us for ArtsThursdays at the Carpenter Center to see Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork: Poems of Electronic Air! The Carpenter Center will be open late, from 5pm-9pm, on the last Thursday of the month as a part of ArtsThursdays, a university-wide initiative supported by Harvard University Committee on the Arts (HUCA).

Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork’s (b. 1982) first East Coast institutional solo exhibition, Poems of Electronic Air, on view February 2 to April 7, 2024. With a background in digital music composition and archaeoacoustics, as well as involvement in noise, electronic, and dance music scenes, Kiyomi Gork creates spatialized environments that operate at the collaborative intersections of sound, communications technologies, sculpture, architecture, and performance. Combining recent sculpture with a newly commissioned, site-specific installation made for the concrete spaces within the Carpenter Center’s iconic Le Corbusier-designed building, the exhibition will depart from an array of the artist’s interests, from the sonic histories of club culture and the concert hall, to the protective qualities of clothing, to the resonances of Brutalist architecture.

On view in the Level 3 galleries will be a series of larger-than-life “sound blanket” sculptures made of wool and silicone that resemble different styles of coats; a sound and sculptural installation comprising a dense cluster of wool and fiberglass columns, black river stones, and an interactive sound component featuring contact microphones and bespoke amplified playback. A new outdoor commission on Level 1 will bring together soft architecture that inflates and deflates alongside a new musical composition sited within the center’s public, column-filled, sunken concrete plaza.
