A conversation with David Toop, Ed Kelly, Antonia Blocker and Hamish Dunbar
On the occasion of the project Volume Dissolves into Atmosphere, MA Culture, Criticism and Curation students host a discussion about the relationship between sound and space and their coexistence in the gallery environment. What is the status of sound in the gallery and how can it be experienced as art? What are the challenges in exhibiting and curating sound work? What is the changing relationship between sound and its audiences? These questions will be discussed by David Toop (composer/musician, curator and UAL Chair of Audio Culture and Improvisation), Ed Kelly (composer/musician and associate lecturer in Visual Art: Fine Art Digital at Camberwell College of Art), Antonia Blocker (Curator: Public Programmes, Whitechapel Gallery) and Hamish Dunbar (Founder and Director, Cafe Oto).
