Conversations with Artists

September 21, 2016, 6:30 pm

Baltimore-based artist and sound mechanic Neil Feather discusses his work with musician and Phillips Collection installations manager Alec MacKaye. Feather has been creating radical and unusual musical instruments since 1970, which at once embody uniquely clever acoustic and engineering principles and are visually arresting. Feather’s deep involvement with Baltimore’s experimental music community compliments his wide international acclaim. He won the 2014 Sondheim Art Prize and the 2014 Trawick Art Prize, and was included in the major exhibition Art or Sound in the 2014 Venice Biennale.
