Terry Adkins’ interdisciplinary art practice was deeply animated by his unwavering passion to transform sound into the material and to make music as concrete as sculpture. His artmaking was grounded in the spirituality of traditional African music and the radiant legacy of the great African-American composers and musicians of our time. A sublime selection of Adkins’ sculptural works made between 1986 and 2013 is now view at the elegant Levy Gorvy gallery. Curated by the artist’s long-time friend and collaborator, Charles Gaines, the show focuses on the physicality of Atkins’ practice: The Smooth, The Cut, and The Assembled. In the second-floor gallery “Darkwater Record”, a stack of five cassette desks with a bust of Mao Zedong, plays W.E.B. DuBois’ free speech appeal “Socialism and the American Negro” from 1960. Its volume on mute, with only the dial angrily visualizing sound, it is an auspicious reminder that that no matter how hard we try to suppress the voice of the disenfranchised, their silence will always be heard. At Levy Gorvy through February 17.
