The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia will present the focused exhibition "Water Music" in its Alonzo and Vallye Dudley Gallery, dedicated to time-based media. Drawing from private collections and from the permanent collection of the Georgia Museum of Art, "Water Music" will bring together diverse visual perspectives on the theme of water and the idea of water music.
A group of conceptual art objects makes up the core of the exhibition-most of them playing on the title of George Frideric Handel's famous collection of orchestral movements, including works by Christian Marclay and Yoko Ono-juxtaposed with more traditional seascape paintings and prints, ranging from 19th-century American Luminist A.T. Bricher to the post-World War II photorealist Richard Estes. The exhibition will also feature a listening station with Handel's "Water Music" (1717) and more recent musical responses, such as John Cage's "Water Music" (1952) and Ned Sublette and Lawrence Weiner's "Remixed Water" (2005).
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday; 1-5 p.m. Sunday
