Upstairs in the Project Space, Katherine Trimble has created a vastly different site-specific work with Touch Box, an immersive site-specific installation that challenges our intake and perceptions of sound. In conjunction with these exhibitions, Lawndale is excited to announce thcommissioning of twonew essays by artist and critic Betsy Huete and art historian Melissa Warak, Ph.D., who will be writing on the work of Sterling Allen and Katherine Trimble, respectively.

Untitled, 2017

In this solo presentation by Sterling Allen, the Austin-based artist creates a site-specific sculpture-based installation that activates sight lines, architectural relationships, hanging conventions, and spatial connections, all while celebrating pop, the handmade, function, failure and the cheap illusion.

He is a co-founder and co-director of Okay Mountain, an artist collective and former gallery based in Austin, Texas.

Project Space
 
Touch Box, 2017

When does a sound become music? When does language break down into sound? What happens to live music if you can't see the performer? Artist and musician, Katherine Trimble asks her audience to contemplate the breakdown of sounds in an immersive site-specific installation.  
 
Katherine Trimble is a Houston-based musician and visual artist. She makes audiovisual installations and performances that explore how our senses influence, contradict, and depend on each other to create our own individual versions of the world. Originally from Rochester, NY, she earned a BFA in Animation from the Rhode Island School of Design (2006) and an MFA in Art & Technology Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2012), and has performed and exhibited her work internationally in a wide range of art spaces, film festivals, music venues and public spaces. She currently teaches at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) and Houston Community College.
