Margaret Noble: Performance & Mixed Media Sound Artist

Margaret Noble’s work is influenced by the beat-driven dance culture of southern California during the 1980s. This inspiration led her to perform as an electronic music DJ in the underground club community of Chicago for several years during the late nineties. In 2004, Noble branched out from the dance floor into more experimental interests and created a monthly arts showcase called Spectacle in Chicago; during this period, she performed and produced experimental works with a variety of cutting edge new-media artists. Her interdisciplinary work resides at the intersection of sound, performance art, video and installation. Fascinated by the power of sound and media to affect an audience’s experience viscerally, Noble weaves together processed abstract sounds and voices with visual forms and motion.

For Art San Diego 2013, Margaret Noble will create a series of four large-scale narrative sculptures that examine loss, time and environmental hauntings through a collision of light, sound and material.

Featuring: Guest DJ

Rather than using a speaker system, music is broadcast via an FM-transmitter with the signal being picked up by wireless headphone receivers worn by the participants. Those without the headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing.

Henry Diltz: California Dreaming

Memories & Visions of LA 1966-75, Photographs by Henry Diltz

Talk / Presentation: 4 - 5 pm
Meet & Greet: 5 - 5:30 pm

The Morrison Hotel Gallery is about people. Founded in 2001 by former record company executive and producer Peter Blachley, music industry professional Richard Horowitz, and music photographer Henry Diltz, The Morrison Hotel® Gallery, which represents world renowned photographers, has grown to become the place to purchase fine art music photography. As you view some of the most inspiring and iconic images of music and musicians photographed over the last fifty-plus years, think about the people who existed on both sides of the lens. The photographers had no idea what they were creating or how historic the imagery would become. It is a one-second click of the shutter that creates a timeless moment in our lives.

Where does talent end and hype begin? A beginner's guide to spotting potential—and the art of the (beat-the-rush) deal
By Andrew M. Goldstein, Nessia Pope, Rachel Corbett | ArtSpacel | March 29, 2013

Art fairs, in addition to being fast-paced zones of high-calibre art commerce, are also social occasions—and, as such, are places where a million different faux pas are possible. But if you're new to the art world, or if you're an art-world veteran who's simply too wealthy, powerful, or oblivious to comply with behavioral norms, how are you supposed to navigate this minefield? To solve this art-fair etiquette dilemma, we've reached out to an array of art professionals—from dealers and collectors to artists and journalists—to ask them to vent their grievances, gripes, and bêtes noires regarding outrageous collector behavior, looky-loos, pesky journalists, and other malefactors. What follows is their advice, and we suggest you take it.
