March 23rd @ 6pm — Opening and 12 SYMBOLS performance
March 31st @ 6pm — 12 SYMBOLS closing performance

12 SYMBOLS, composed by Chris Duncan, is an immersive sound performance and exhibition that metaphorically implicates the energy and patterns of the sun, moon, and the phenomenon of the eclipse to ponder our relationship to the passing of time.

Cymbals become symbols as 12 percussionists engage light, movement, and sound. The physical stage set by the initial performance of 12 SYMBOLS moves through phases throughout the course of the exhibition, welcoming a host of artists from Northern and Southern California alike in a series of performances.

The exhibition and performances are dedicated to the loving memory of Paul Clipson, a light and love gone too soon.

About the Artist

Chris Duncan is an Oakland California-based artist who employs time, repetition, accumulation and transcendence as a basis for experiments in visual and sound based media. An overriding theme in current works is the use of natural forces, such as the sun, the moon and the ocean as conceptual and compositional prompts for both visual and sonic efforts. He has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally. Outside of his studio practice, Duncan, along with his partner Maria Otero, runs LAND AND SEA, a small press and project space in Oakland. Chris Duncan received his BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts, his MFA from Stanford University, and is represented by Halsey Mckay NY.
