New Exhibition Explores How We Interact with Sound
The Politics of Sound
January 20th, 2022 – April 10th, 2022
Featuring work by jamilah malika abu-bakare, Adam Basanta, Marjie Crop Eared Wolf, Maskull Lasserre, Benny Nemer, Michèle Pearson Clark, and Jessica Walker. Guest curated by Tyler Stewart.
Two Rivers Gallery is excited to announce our new exhibition, The Politics of Sound, curated by Tyler Stewart. This group show, including interactive and multimedia work by seven artists, explores the difference between hearing and listening.
How does what we hear shape our actions? Who do we listen to, and who do we exclude, either intentionally or unconsciously? When our perceptions and experiences lead us to value some voices and sounds over others, how do we learn to listen in such a way that everyone is heard?
The Politics of Sound features many opportunities for interaction. Some artworks have elements designed to be taken home, while others can be worn and taken for a walk, allowing participants to engage deeply and conduct their own sound experiments.
Produced in conjunction with the exhibition, Two Rivers Gallery invites the community to spend time in our listening booth, where visitors can enjoy playlists curated by Gallery staff and learn more about the sounds and stories behind some of the artwork.
