Watch below to listen to a conversation between Aruna D’Souza, writer and curator, and Dylan Robinson, author of Hungry Listening: Resonant Theory for Indigenous Sound Studies and Co-Curator of ICI’s Traveling Exhibition, Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts. A previously recorded conversation on Robinson’s new book, Hungry Listening is followed by a live Q&A.
Hungry Listening is the first book to consider listening from both Indigenous and settler colonial perspectives, and a critical response to what has been called the “whiteness of sound studies.” In addition to examples of how decolonial practices of listening emerge from an increased awareness of listening positionality, Hungry Listening includes a series of event scores, dialogic improvisations, and forms of poetic response and refusal that demand a reorientation toward the act of reading as a way of listening.
This program is co-presented with the Belkin Art Gallery in Vancouver, Canada, where Soundings is on view September 8 - December 6, 2020. The exhibition will be activated by a series of performances throughout the fall, so please click here to stay up to date on all Soundings programs at the Belkin.
