Amaranth Borsuk exhibits Whispering Galleries and performs in New Haven, Connecticut

October 6, 2014 - IAS faculty member Amaranth Borsuk launched two new installations of her interactive textwork, Whispering Galleries, in New Haven Connecticut.  The work was installed in New Haven's City Hall in early September, as well as at the Institute Library, Connecticut's oldest independent circulating library. The Institute Library launch included a talk about the history of the library, which was founded in 1826 for the education of apprentices (like the subject of Whispering Galleries), a performance of popular violin music of the period, and an artist's talk by Borsuk. The evening concluded with a collaborative performance by Borsuk and violinist Gregory Thompkins, bringing the erasure work to life.
