MoMA Announces First Sound-Based Exhibition This August
by BWW News Desk - Apr 05, 2013

The Museum of Modern Art's first major exhibition of sound art, Soundings: A Contemporary Score, presents work by 16 of the most innovative contemporary artists working with sound. The exhibition is on view from August 10 to November 3, 2013 in the Special Exhibitions gallery and other locations around the Museum. While the artists in Soundings approach sound from a variety of angles-the visual arts, architecture, performance, computer programming, and music-they share an interest in working with, rather than against or independent of, a given situation or environment. These artistic responses range from architectural interventions to visualizations of otherwise inaudible sound to an exploration of how sound ricochets within a gallery to a range of field recordings including bats, abandoned buildings in Chernobyl, 59 bells in New York City, and a factory in Taiwan. Soundings is organized by Barbara London, Associate Curator, with Leora Morinis, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art, MoMA. (more...)
