Array is a SOLUNA event and the newest multisensory music and art exhibit coming to Dallas. Immerse yourself and treat your senses to a different kind of interactive art experience featuring six new commissions by Dallas Artists.
SOLUNA is a festival for Dallas, bringing together international artists with Dallas’s finest arts organizations. Anchored by performances with Jaap van Zweden at the close of his Farewell Celebration Season as Music Director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, SOLUNA celebrates Dallas’s rich cultural legacy and diversity of expression. By incorporating contemporary and performing arts and strong educational and science components, audiences are invited to experience music and art while interacting with their Dallas community in new and exciting ways.
Sheryl is a Puerto Rican artist residing in Dallas. Her work explores themes related to identity, personal experience and memory. While largely focused on life-sized, fiber-based installations, she also explores similar themes through the use of photography and found objects. She has exhibited her work locally, regionally and nationally.
Mattheiu is a distinguished interactive installation and performance artist here in Dallas. He has exhibited his work at the Dallas Museum of Art, while also contributing performances and installations for the Modern Art Museum, Dallas Aurora festival and the UTD Gallery. Mattheiu is a master at blending calculated technology with beautifully precise abstract creativity. Mattheiu will be collaborating with Carmen Menza.
The Dallas-based artist is a multi-material fabricator who received his BFA from SMU. Jordan has developed a combination of techniques using traditional and digital sculpting methods to produce objects that engage dialogue between spatial perception and subjective concepts. Jordan will be collaborating with Eric Trich on an installation.
A Dallas local, Jeremy travels the world documenting the threats facing our oceans with an emphasis on protecting what is left. He is best known for LUCiD, an installation that is currently on a world tour with the Ocean Plastics Laboratory. As a commitment of the G7 Summit, the German Ministry has licensed his work for the next three years as it travels the globe. His latest work, “Life Support,” is a piece of the ocean, which allows people to see and feel the very thing that supports life.
As an interdisciplinary Dallas artist, Carmen’s practice spans new media, light sculptures, filmmaking and experiential public art installations. Her films have screened at Dallas Aurora, Dallas VideoFest and on KERA. Her software-based light work is part of the permanent collection at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary Museum in Dallas. She has exhibited in numerous shows and received her BFA in jazz guitar performance from the University of North Texas.
James is a multidisciplinary new media artist, composer and DJ. He employs technology, improvisation and space into the pieces he composes to create site- and musician-specific electro-acoustic bodies of work. As the owner of New Media Recordings in Fort Worth, he also writes scores and sound design for films, and has also produced pieces for international artists.
Eric is a Dallas-based new media artist. His formative years studying at the Art Institute and the Meadows School of Art at SMU has inspired him to continue his pursuit of designing interactive installations and developing virtual and augmented reality for new platforms. After college, Eric opened 1111 Studio Gallery in the Design District.
As a mixed-media visual artist from Dallas, Tramaine primarily uses photography, design, film and animation for his installations. A strong purveyor of aesthetic, his work has taken on the role of narration to create bodies of work with a storyline, usually within itself or for a larger construct that he’s continuously building.
Enjoy the exhibit, and be sure to check out our ticketed concert experience next door at The Bomb Factory featuring Nas, Big Gigantic, Kaleo and Jacob Banks collaborating with Dallas-based performers.
