Matthew Steinke

Northern–Southern is proud to present a new Matthew Steinke solo exhibition, DELIRIUMS.

Three acoustic robots emote music accompanied by found voice recordings and projections. Each of the robots mimics a human personality disorder: Cluster A (odd, eccentric), Cluster B (dramatic, emotional, erratic), and Cluster C (anxious, fearful). The robots “sing” round robin in a group therapy session.

Visiting hours are Saturdays, 3–6:30pm.

Or schedule an appointment! Email hello@northern-southern.com.

The exhibition will run until the end of July. We’ll host some special events, too!
