Reception | 5:00 pm
Concert | 5:30 pm

Hear chamber music and experience the graphic, large-scale installation created by Colombian-born artist Jessica Angel. Presented in collaboration by the Department of Music and the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts, Chamber Music @ AEIVA offers a reception after work in a relaxing setting with art and music. The event is free and open to the public.

The fifth Chamber Music @ AEIVA will feature a concert in conjunction with Angel’s site-specific installation Facing the Hyperstructure, which covers the entire lobby and atrium. Angel’s installations aim to enable forms of collaboration among sciences, philosophy, music, art and new media. Angel uses a variety of materials, including cut vinyl, paint and wallpaper, to transform architectural interiors by distorting the viewer’s visual perspective.

The AEIVA lobby featuring "Facing the Hyperstructure." The musical performance is titled “Air in a Loop.” It will feature four world premiere compositions written by members of the Birmingham Art Music Alliance: Monroe Golden, Holland Hopson, Kyle McGucken, and Tom Reiner.

The performing musicians are from the UAB Department of Music as well as the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and the Atlanta Opera: Hillary Tidman, flute; Diana Dunn, oboe; Kathleen Costello, clarinet; Tariq Masri, bassoon; and Kevin Kozak, French horn.
