Cranfield and Slade. 12 Sun Songs.
Inspired by the exhibition The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl, the Henry invited visual artists Brady Cranfield, Kathy Slade, Matthew Green, and Rachel Kessler to host a series of casual listening parties that will explore the role of vinyl records in contemporary art practice and how vinyl has played a role in their work both physically and conceptually. Visitors are also encouraged to drop in and sample some of the music selections from the Henry’s Test Site or bring their own vinyl to this listening party and conversation.
Kathy Slade works with embroidery, sound, sculpture, books, film, and video. As the Founding Editor of the Emily Carr University Press she developed READ Books, in 1999, at the Charles H. Scott Gallery. She also runs Publication Studio Vancouver with Keith Higgins.
Slade collaborates with Brady Cranfield on their ongoing project The Music Appreciation Society and as Cranfield & Slade whose concept album titled 12 Sun Songs was Released in 2009 (Or Gallery and Christoph Keller Editions).
Recently Slade’s work was presented in Cue: Artists’ Video at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Die Perfekte Ausstellung at the Heidelberger Kunstverein, and as a solo project at the Audain Gallery. Cranfield & Slade’s 10 Riot Songs is forthcoming.
