Hammer Museum Public Engagement Artist-In-Residence Program:
July 17, 2010
The Hammer Museum invited the public to participate in 'everyone in a place', a day-long sound installation by Chris Kallmyer. The work was composed of the sounds of visitors wearing bells issued to them upon arrival, and their subsequent wanderings through museum spaces. Bell related sound pieces took place throughout the day, including circulating ice cream carts, an animatronic Bell Santa Gamelan in the museum’s coatroom, a solo amplified-bell performance, and an African bell ensemble.
Admission to the museum was free of charge to all participants.
