KS Art presents NOISE/ART a group exhibition curated by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. This show represents the living phenomena of underground noise musicians who work contemporaneously as visual artists and who utilize the ephemera and product of noise music, both improvised and composed, as a primary forum for their expression.
Among the artists presented in NOISE/ART are: Dennis Tyfus, Maya Miller, John Olson, Leslie Keffer,Nate Young, Dylan Nyoukis and Kim Gordon.
In 2009 Picturebox Books will publish NOISE/ART as an artists book edited by Thurston Moore. The book will be primarily a visual survey of the art as presented by noise musicians as displayed on the thousands of arcane and obscure cassette releases the past decade.

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
