Conduit Gallery presents "Speaking in Tongues" opening day
Conduit Gallery will present "Speaking in Tongues," a group exhibition of works by Vincent Falsetta, C. Meng, Maja Ruznic, and Anthony Sonnenberg.
Speaking in tongues, also known as glossolalia, refers to the phenomenon of speaking a language indecipherable to all but the speaker. The practice spans continents and millennia and has origins in Greco Roman and Christian religious traditions. It is therefore often considered divine in its origin; the speaker Pulling up the Roots of meaning through ecstatic action. Speaking in Tongues is also the name of the 1983 art rock masterpiece by The Talking Heads, whose track listing activates this text.
The four artists in the exhibition, each with their own idiosyncratic approach to image making, swamp their works with ideas and intent through their own visual language.
The exhibition will remain on display through January 2.
