The Memory Project
A special audio and visual art installation in the MAG Gallery
November 7th – November 12th
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 11th, 4-7pm
Artist Walk & talk: Sunday, November 12th, 3-5pm
Larchmont, New York –– Christine Shannon Aaron, a long time Larchmont/Mamaroneck resident and Mamaroneck Artists Guild member, received an individual artist’s grant from ArtsWestchester to pursue an art project in our community. The Memory Project invited all who live in, work in, or have a relationship to the Larchmont Mamaroneck Community to share a memory. Memories were written on specialty paper, provided by The Memory Project. Voice recorded memories were submitted through the website or by phone.
Memories were used to create several audiovisual art installations. One installation includes memories on strips of paper, coated in wax and hung to make a beautiful memory waterfall. Audio recorded Memories are woven into an audio piece to which visitors can listen. All memories will be on exhibit from November 7th through November 12th. The resulting artwork represents a joining of voices, where both participants and the audience can experience, read and share one another’s memories.
Come into the gallery and meet Christine Tuesday, November 7th from 2-5pm and. Even though the exhibition will already be on display, you will be able to contribute one of your memories that will be added to The Memory Project online archive.
There is an opening reception on Saturday, November 11, from 4 to 7pm and an artist-walk-and-talk on Sunday, November 12 from 3 to 5pm. All events are free of charge and open to the public.
A catalog explaining and documenting the project will be created and available on line on The Memory Project website (www.TheMemoryProject.space) in December, and all memories will be archived online.
