CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Artist and Austin Peay State University graduate Brian Cantrell is bringing his innovative mediation on the heavens and the different dimensions of existence to Clarksville this November with a new exhibition, “Spiritvs Ex Machina,” at the APSU Downtown Gallery.
The show, featuring recent new media works by Cantrell, opens with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 1, and it runs through Nov. 28. The exhibition is free and open.
“The amorphous point-cloud geometry and sound of ‘Spiritvs Ex Machina’ is an allusion to disembodiment and to the idea of ether more generally,” Cantrell said, “but also to the specters and myths that fill the gap between phenomena that lie outside the threshold of our senses and our eventual understanding of mechanisms and causalities that underlie them.”
His work will be on display on the lower level of the gallery. Another exhibit, “XX: The Work of Maurice Minor and Phillipe Pirrip,” will be displayed in the gallery’s upper level.
The APSU Downtown Gallery is located at 116 Strawberry Alley in downtown Clarksville. It is dedicated to exhibiting the work of APSU faculty and alumni.
