The Art of Noise 2010 celebrates artists who are inspired to create work that traverses the two timeless muses of Art and Music: Lionel Deluy captures contemporary music creators in-camera and morphs them to new artistic highs, Jillian Kogan incorporates elements associated with music (CDs, drugs, lyrics) into institutional declarations of patriotism, Russell Young's lauded Pig Portraits transform iconic mugshots of musicians into silk-screened symbols of status, award-winning photographer Scott McDermott shares a selection from his Mandela Day series, each image gently pursuing meaning from the eyes and hands of renowned musicians, while Ted Riederer transforms musical performances into permanent pieces of art.
