Hugh Livingston. Passing Days, 2016. Video still.

 

Since 2008, e4c—or, electronic 4Culture—has been a storefront venue for the exhibition of dynamic, electronic artworks, giving artists the opportunity to present new works of art while enlivening Seattle’s urban core. Our state-of-the-art screens are visible from the sidewalk and street on Prefontaine Place South, just outside the 4Culture offices and gallery. Last fall, through an open call to artists, media makers across the U.S. working in all genres were invited to apply to participate in the program.

Kicking off this new season is Hugh Livingston’s Passing Days. The canonical beauty of a sunset inspires the exploration of the passage of time in this multi-channel video. Sunset experiences have deep cultural significance, so why not enjoy many, as often as possible, in a contrapuntal, almost musical, format? A graduate in music from Yale and recipient of the Bach Society Prize for excellence in musicianship, Hugh creates multimedia installations related to natural and built spaces and performs exploratory cello music that responds to spaces, landscapes, history, and people. Catch Passing Days in rotation on the e4c screens starting Thursday, March 2!

We are proud and excited to welcome Hugh and the 16 other new artists selected to exhibit video work on e4c. Stay tuned—as artworks are completed and prepared for exhibition, they will be added to the lineup throughout 2017.
