“The Language of Things” includes “System #49,” an eight-channel monochromatic video; “System #32,” an eight-channel sound display; “Serendibite,” a deep listening room with two-channel sounds; “Quartet,” a four-channel polychromatic video; “Open Field,” a two-component open sound system with oscilloscope; and “Painting #01,” a video painting from The Kondratiev Cluster.
“This remarkably innovative exhibition aligns with San Diego Art Institute’s commitment to producing thought-provoking new works,” said Jacqueline Silverman, executive director. “The participatory nature of Roberto’s work and the diverse programming we created to go along with it will inspire, encourage dialogue, and provide moments to learn — all of which are main goals of the institute.”
Romero-Molina is a visual and sound artist working on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Originally trained as a painter, his work with sound and electronic mixed media takes a distinctly visual approach, engaging space and design as essential elements within his multi-sensory installations.
“As a dual citizen and trans-border artist, I have delved deeply into both cultures and have used this to see myself from the other side” said Romero-Molina. “In the context of present art, my work points at the possibility of an internal change, a transformation in my perceptual posture and hopefully others. I strive to make new connections, new associations and explore borders as other ways of reading the present.”
The institute is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The exhibition runs through March 17.
