Sounds Like, a group exhibition including the work of Mike Calway-Fagen, Nicholas des Cognets, Janelle Iglesias and Tom Scicluna.
There is value in not knowing, in being unsure. When you can't name something, can you still know what it looks like, what it smells like, feels like, sounds like?
With this question in mind the exhibition's four artists deploy objects, videos, and discrete noises that act as mediums of experience outside the structure of language but beyond the bounds of the merely visual. Their varied interests lie not in things that have soundtracks; that work as an accompaniment to a purely visual experience, but situations where sound is integral to the structure and composition of the piece. These things could not exist without sound and can't help but make some auditory discharge. The sound element of this work resists quick categorization and allows things to remain mysterious a few moments longer.

Death of a Printed Story, an exhibition by Miami-based artist Fabian Pena at DV. Death of a Printed Story is a comment and personal reaction to the inexorable massive presence of printed propaganda in our everyday existence. In a predominantly visual culture that overproduces printed material, the piece explores the relationship between reality and simulacra, creating a scenario where media begin to reign in contradictory and conflicting rivalry with themselves.
