Barbara Yontz at Vanderbilt
New York artist Barbara Yontz will take viewers back in time and across the universe in No Going Back at Vanderbilt’s Space 204. The multimedia exhibit includes sound art, video, and natural materials (including human hair). The anchor of the show is Yontz’s 2009 The Star Womb Project: Monad to Nomad. It explores the origins of the universe with a nurturing, womb-like take on the cosmos. Yontz, an art professor as St. Thomas College, was inspired by the experiments of scientist Daniel Wolf Savin. Yontz used Savin’s studies of the “birth of the first star” to create a listening space based on data generated in his work. The show runs through June 29 in the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Art Center.
