Sound Artist’s Visual Work Selected for National Exhibitions

Works from “A Work of Art for Every Entry in Index—Subjects—Library of Congress” by Holland Hopson have been juried into Art Now America: National Juried Exhibition in Slocumb Galleries of East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, juried by Mike Calway-Fagen; and selected for Reality Shift, a Mid-America College Art Association (MACAA) online exhibition curated by Brielle Jenkins. Both exhibitions open the first week of March.

Hopson, who is an assistant professor of arts entrepreneurship at UA, is a sound and media artist, composer and improviser. A multi-instrumentalist, he usually performs on clawhammer banjo and electronics. Hopson often augments his instruments with custom-designed sensor interfaces and performs with his own highly responsive, interactive computer programs. He has performed in Australia, Europe and North America along with notable experimental and outsider musicians.
