UCO Melton Gallery to Present ‘You Are Here’ Interactive Exhibit

The University of Central Oklahoma’s Melton Gallery will host a free and open-to-the-public opening reception for “You Are Here,” an interactive art exhibition featuring works that engage visitors in the themes of light, space, identity and perception, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Aug. 20. The exhibit will be on display Aug. 20-Nov. 19 at the Melton Gallery, located in the UCO Art and Design building, in the center of Central’s campus.

“You Are Here” features a surround sound and video installation by Patrick Conlon and Christina Giacona. The audience will be enveloped by a soundscape comprised of nine musical movements, each paired with projected dance performance videos.

“While taking a vacation from our physical selves is often an important part of our day, this work asks you to be present,” said Veronica Cianfrano, UCO Melton Gallery curator.

“The work in this show snaps us back into ourselves and transforms us from spectator to participant. Simply using light and sound, these artists have turned the mundane into the extraordinary.”

The exhibit also includes multiple projections of a non-narrative film by Kato Buss and Matt Fowler. This installation will explore how identity and perception are shaped through the medium of light.

The “You Are Here” exhibit will end with a closing reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Nov. 19 in the Melton Gallery.

The UCO Melton Gallery Facebook and Instagram pages will be sharing additional video artwork and information on supporting events that will take place from 5-7:30 p.m. Sept. 3, 24, Oct. 1, 29 and Nov. 5.

The Melton Gallery is free and open to the public noon to 4 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays and Fridays by appointment.

To schedule an appointment, email Meltongallery@uco.edu or call 405-974-2432.

All visitors to the Central campus are required to wear a face mask while on campus, both inside buildings and outdoors.
