You could consider the art genre C Reider, who goes by his first initial, will curate as experimental as the gallery environment the exhibition will occupy. His exhibition is of sound art.

“Sound Through Barriers: Sound Art and Listening in Continuous Space” is scheduled to run April 20-29 at Art Lab.

Reider describes sound art as the space where visual art and music push at each other’s borders.

“It’s easier to show that explain,” he says. “And it will be my job as the curator to do both.”

Deadline for submissions is Feb. 6.

Art Lab is a volunteer-run cooperative. As its Web site, explains, “You’ve seen those empty store fronts as you’ve wandered the streets of Old Town Fort Collins. They look like buildings that need some energy to make them happy again. That’s what Art Lab Fort Collins is all about. We’re temporarily filling those wonderful buildings with art, innovation, music, smiling faces until a new tenant comes along. When a new tenant decides to move in, we just move on to the next empty space.”
