“Sound is Place,” an exhibit featuring work by local artist Burke Jam, will be on display Monday, March 26, through Friday, April 20, in the University Center Gallery at The University of Montana.
The gallery will host an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29, and an artist lecture is slated for 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, April 16, in the UC Theater.
Jam’s multidisciplinary work mainly focuses on sound, as he uses audible elements to challenge the viewer’s perception of time and place. A Montana native, Jam currently is pursuing a Master in Fine Arts degree at UM. His work is rooted in his interest in perception, perspective and the experience of place. It questions the hierarchy of the senses and aims to alert viewers to how they listen, consider and interact with sound.
The “Sound is Place” exhibition and related events are free and open to the public. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and is located in UC Room 227.
