Inside Voice is a compilation of recorded sound works curated by Sharmyn Cruz Rivera and Latham Zearfoss. In concert with YES x 1000, Zearfoss’s current exhibition at Threewalls, Inside Voice focuses on the human voice as both content and form. The works in Inside Voice use this human “instrument” as a conduit of connectivity between polarized zones: the intangible and concrete, the personal and political, the intimately fluid and the robotically programmed. Participating artists include Alessandro Bosetti, Cauleen Smith, Colin Self, Jaap Blonk, Holly Herndon, Olivia Block, Alyssa Moxley and more.
About Sharmyn Cruz Rivera
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Sharmyn started as an independent curator and an art writer for The Fractal, a multidirectional project focused on cultural commentary and art criticism. Sharmyn received a BA in Art History and Modern Languages at the University of Puerto Rico in 2010 and a MA in Arts Administration and Policy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. Her curatorial endeavors and research revolve around artist Max Neuhaus, contemporary dance, performance art, sound art and space politics. She was a curatorial fellow for the SAIC MFA Show in 2012 and a 2013 summer participant at Never The Same, a project that documents Chicago’s history of socially and politically engaged art at University of Chicago. Sharmyn is currently program assistant at LAMPO, an organization that promotes and supports artists working in electronic and electroacoustic music, free improvisation, sound art and other new forms.
