Featuring work from women artists from culturally diverse backgrounds, exploring sound as a subject and a medium in a ground-breaking exhibition at York Art Gallery this summer. Exploring gender, sound art and sonic cultures this new exhibition opens at York Art Gallery on July 13th 2019 running until 15 September. The exhibition is on tour from New Art Exchange, Nottingham.
Curated by Christine Eyene, known for her enquiry into feminist art and her research on sound art from an African perspective – Sounds Like Her sets out to broaden existing approaches to sound art and challenge the Eurocentric and patriarchal frameworks that have informed the discourse on sound art practice and continue to dominate the mainstream today.
The project brings together six women artists, each exploring sound as a medium or subject matter: Ain Bailey, Sonia Boyce OBE RA, Linda O’Keeffe, Christine Sun Kim, Madeleine Mbida and Magda Stawarska-Beavan.
