Gallery 400 at the University of Illinois at Chicago will host "Between Sound and Vision," an exhibition featuring international artists, composers and musicians whose works reflect the interplay of graphic notations, sculptural instruments and sound installations. "Between Sound and Vision" engages its audience in a uniquely conjoined act of listening and seeing, creating spaces for a truly interactive experience," said Lorelei Stewart, visiting director of Gallery 400.

"Between Sound and Vision" builds on experimental composer John Cage's 1969 publication of nontraditional notations that moved beyond specific notes positioned on staves.

"The exhibition includes audio interpretations and staged performances from selections of Cage's book 'Notations,'" said Stewart. "Notations" included over 150 artists who employed visual elements in hand painting, pencil and collage to convey suggestions for musical sounds.

A compact disc catalogue, which includes interpretations of graphic scores never before recorded, accompanies the programs associated with the exhibition. The opening reception includes performances by Cube, Eric Anderson, Alison Knowles and Paul Panhuysen.

The exhibit runs from Feb. 14 through March 10. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Direct exhibit questions to Gallery 400, (312) 996-6114.
