The Jack Straw New Media Gallery opened in 1999 to support artists working with visual and installation art, with an emphasis on sound. The Gallery is one feature of the New Media Gallery Program, and is one of three residency programs at Jack Straw. The New Media Gallery exhibits artists’ work through an open call process like the Artist Support Program and Writers Program. As one of a handful of exclusively sound art spaces in the world, it has been attracting applicants nationally and internationally, however Jack Straw has a commitment to local artists.

Gallery residencies include an exhibition of up to three months in the gallery; 20 hours of studio assistance with one of our engineers; access to Jack Straw Cultural Center’s audio recording, production, and presentation equipment; two public events – the opening and an artist talk; and an interview podcast.

August 4-September 29, 2023

Dream Motif is a series of dream synchronicities. Each dream has a logic and theme that corresponds to leitmotifs created by local musicians, visuals of the collective unconscious, and soundscapes that make vivid the fragile distinction between waking and dream life.
