Listening brings a group of international artists together to interrogate the act of listening in contemporary art. This pioneering exhibition examines the crossover between the visual and the sonic and their complex relationships to the senses.
Our next reading group considers French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy’s Listening, a lyrical meditation on sound in relation to the human body.
Explore the artists, works and ideas with a tour across both venues led by Site Gallery Curator, Sara Cluggish, and SIA Gallery Curator, Tim Machin.
Author and artist Brandon LaBelle gives a performative lecture revealing the poetics and politics that occur as soon as we open our mouths.
In the final week of Listening, join Juxtavoices, Sheffield’s antichoir, for an afternoon performance of new music with projected video at Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery.
Four projects have now been selected for our 2015-16 Platform residencies. Find out who will be producing new work as the gallery turns into a studio and the creative process becomes the artwork.
The Transmission Programme 2014/15 lecture series examines the process and thinking – the how and why – of becoming an artist, with guest speakers including artists, writers, curators and academics.
