Cat Del Buono’s “Voices” and Panel Discussion
Winthrop University Galleries tackles domestic violence head-on with its newest exhibit “Voices,” a video installation created by artist Cat Del Buono. “Voices” will be on view Jan. 20-March 11 in the Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery. On multiple video monitors, viewers will only see the mouth of an anonymous domestic violence survivor sharing her first-hand experiences with abuse. As the viewer enters the installation, a “concert of voices creates a symphony of incomprehensible words”— only when the viewer comes close to a single monitor does each narrative become clear. Accompanying this exhibition will be a panel discussion featuring Tony Porter, adviser to the NFl on this issue, and other figures in the police force and domestic violence prevention area, January 21 at 7 p.m.
