About the Exhibition
The works in Treble existed beyond the limiting categories that define “sound art,” “sculpture,” “drawing,” or “architecture,” reflecting a generation of artists seeking to move freely between disciplines. These artists create meditations on drawing through sound, sound through drawing, sculpture as an ephemeral and time-based sonic experience, objects as potential sound, and architecture as an acoustic vessel. Some historical anchors such as Max Neuhaus and Josephn Beuys were included as well as five commissioned new works for the space by Andrea Ray, Paulo Vivacqua, David Schaffer, Steve Roden and Stephen Vitiello.

Performances and programs were held in conjuction with WKCR, Columbia University, and New Sound New York, a city-wide sonic festival.
