The College of Southern Nevada Department of Fine Arts will host an exhibition of interactive sound and light sculptures by California artist, Margaret Noble. Noble’s artwork resides at the intersection of sound, sculpture, and performance and is influenced by the beat-driven dance culture of southern California that flourished during the 1980’s. “Margaret Noble: Resonating Objects” will begin Friday, November 10, 2017 and will run through Saturday, January 20, 2018. Ms. Noble will participate in a Preview, Artist Talk, and Artist Reception on Thursday, November 9, at 6 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery, room H101, on the North Las Vegas Campus.
Speaking of her work, Noble says; “my body of work includes resonating objects, shrines, and portals which are intertwined with personal and narrative elements. I fear and love technology through a complex relationship I have with it in living, teaching, and making art. My experience of growing up on welfare often boils over in my work as I frequently explore social hierarchies and escapism. I engage with all of these ideas by looking at media, society, and interpersonal conflicts. For all my works, I am interested in creating personal moments in public places. This is theatre in that these experiences are constantly evolving due to the particularity of various venues and the nature of an audience's participation.”
