Curator’s Perspective with Barbara London

Barbara London, one of the most influential curators of new media art, presented on her practice and her latest exhibition, Seeing Sound, traveling internationally with ICI through 2025. London reflected on creating a context that gives sound a visual and physical presence, and how artists have engaged with our changing relationship to sound, especially at a time of recalibration and community building. 

Seeing Sound challenges ideas about what art in a perpetual state of flux may be, integrating and interrogating sound as a medium through the work of Seth Cluett, Juan Cortés, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, Bani Haykal, Yuko Mohri, Marina Rosenfeld, Aura Satz, and Samson Young. Prioritizing ideas over the use of technology, the artists employ analog and digital tools with irony, humor, poetry and a political edge. London will reflect on creating a context that gives sound a visual and physical presence, and how artists have engaged with our changing relationship to sound, especially at a time of recalibration and community building.
