Every month we have Art Waves on Cape Breton University’s Caper Radio. This radio show aims connect you with the staff here at the CBUAG as well as the artists featured in the gallery through the connection between music and art.
We also want to get to know our student artists as well, which is why we also have our Student Playlists. Using our newly made YouTube channel, we will be able to bring you more playlists with a wider selections of songs to choose from! This music is specifically chosen by the week’s featured student and says something about how they work both outside and in the visual arts.
Last week we heard the greatest hits of Monet’s time. This week we are featuring a playlist curated by a Nova Scotian celebrity. Peter Dykhuis is the Director/Curator of Dalhousie Art Gallery at Dalhousie University in Halifax. He was also the Co-Curator of our previous exhibition Capture 2014. I interviewed Peter on our radio show Art Waves back in December and we spoke about his art, life, and career in the art world. For a full biography of Peter you can or to see some of his artwork, click here.
The ‘curatorial’ selection is relatively simple but relevant to ‘realism’ from my point of view: a progression from ‘dark’ subjects/content to ‘lighter’ ones. It spans a few decades of my musical spectrum and, if anything, it would all be categorized in the genre of ‘alt-rock’.
Hope it is of interest, some of the bands are pretty obscure, but I like it that way.
