On Space and Sound

Collaborative seminar between British Art Network and Contemporary Art Society Subject Specialist Network on the topic of sound based art

Tate Britain, Thursday 27 October 2016, 11.00 -17.00.

 

This one day collaborative seminar will bring together the two networks to explore the different aspects of displaying, collecting and preserving sound pieces. The seminar will present a series of short papers from invited artists, academics and curators followed by panel discussions and opportunities for networking.

This seminar will focus on different aspects of displaying, collecting and preserving sound pieces. Discussing current commissions (Katrina Palmer, The Quarryman’s Daughters for Art Angel); exhibitions and recent sound displays (for example, Susan Phillipzs: War Damaged Musical Instruments) we will consider current theoretical, practical and institutional issues dealing with artists working with sounds as a sculptural medium, informing the networks about current practices in contemporary art.

The event is open to all but of particular interest to curators, conservators, artists, technicians, managers and registrars at all stages of their working in non-traditional media formats.

Confirmed speakers include:

Cevdet Erek, Artist and Musician, Lecturer at the Turkish State Music Conservatory, Istanbul Technical University)

Ann Gallagher, Director of Collections (British Art), Tate

James Lingwood, Co-Director of Artangel
