Panel discussion: Resounding – sound and music in contemporary art

Sunday 29 October 2017, 2-4pm

Responding to Anri Sala’s integration of music into his contemporary art practice, Resounding brings together artists and curators to discuss the role of sound and music within contemporary art.

For the 33rd Kaldor Public Art Project, The Last Resort, Anri Sala draws together sound, music and sculpture, as an ensemble of snare drums gives a live, rhythmic response to the artist’s reworked version of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A Major. In this panel discussion, leading artists and curators explore the role of sound and music in their work, inside and outside the gallery space, and imagine future possibilities for the exhibition, perception and experience of sound in art.

Resounding: Sound and music in contemporary art is convened by Dr Caleb Kelly, and presented by Kaldor Public Art Projects in collaboration with UNSW Art and Design.
