The Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana has on display an ambitious new artwork House of the Singing Winds. This multichannel video installation was inspired by the historical Indiana home and studio of painter Theodore Clement (T.C.) Steele in Nashville, Indiana. The artist Jawshing Arthur Liou, has exhibited internationally and teaches at the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design.
The exhibit captures the historic Steele home in stunning, high-definition video throughout the seasons. The digital exhibit includes a voiceover inspired by the writings of Selma Neubacher Steele. This narrative is focused on Selma telling the unsung story of preserving the house and grounds as a memorial site after her husband’s passing on July 26, 1926 at the home. The House of the Singing Winds is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is an Indiana State Historic Site.
This exhibit is curated by Elliot Reichert, Curator of Contemporary Art.
