‘Seeing voices’ – public programs
WrongSolo, Rehearsal documentation for I am a branch floating on a swollen river after the rain 2017
Seeing voices uses the Monash University Collection as a springboard for thinking through the voice and how it is visualised, employed and reimagined in contemporary art.In the exhibition, the voice might act as a metaphor for collective action, for speaking out against injustice and coming together in gestures of solidarity. It can be a marker of cultural and geographic specificity or the trace of disappearing language. It may also function like a spiritual medium; through its historical recording and archiving it time-travels to haunt the present.
The first iteration of the exhibition opens at Horsham Regional Art Gallery 14 October and run through until 10 December. Why not time your visit to coincide with a public program?
