Join Seeing Sound curator Barbara London in celebrating the release of her book Video/Art: The First Fifty Years on Monday, January 20 at MoMA, New York.

Seeing Sound challenges the private quality of our contemporary sonic experience and places visitors in immersive encounters with sound as art. Instead of relying on headphones and earbuds, which isolate the listener, the artworks in the exhibition create expansive sonic landscapes.
