In this project, we are concerned with the way in which curation reproduces the same patterns of power and exclusion that are dominant at all levels of our societies. Sounds Now aims to actively stimulate inclusion in our professional field and thus open up the capacity and possibility for different experiences, conditions and perspectives in shaping the sonic art that reaches audiences today.
The project includes a range of actions including labs for curators, learning programs run by artists, composers and experts, new productions, symposia and research. These actions will generate a much-needed discourse on music curation, provide experience to participants in a variety of social and cultural contexts, and diversify the current pool of curators by providing new pathways into the profession.
SOUND ART IN PUBLIC SPACES
Van 15 oktober tot 14 november streken we in het kader van het creatieve stadfestival WONDER neer op de Van Marcke site met de geluidskunstententoonstelling Sound Art in Public Spaces. Curator Raquel Castro selecteerde vier werken die de relatie tussen natuur, technologie en openbare ruimte in vraag stellen. Alle info vind je hier.
