A variety of visual interpretations of music and performance, and new performances inspired by those interpretations, can be seen and heard at “Listening to Print,” a 10-year retrospective of student works mounted at SVA Gallery, 209 East 23 Street, through Saturday, February 2.
All pieces in the show were created for instructor Olga Mezhibovskaya’s typography course at SVA, and all “evoke and are led by rhythm, music, sound, music and performance,” she says. Long known for its experimental, interdisciplinary nature, Mezhibovskaya’s course “evolved out of the good fortune that she was not only a graphic designer but a musicologist,” Richard Wilde, chair of BFA Advertising and Design, says, adding that this collection of her students’ work comprises “one of the most innovative shows in the history of the department.”
