How can a score be a call and tool for decolonization?

Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts unfolds in a sequence of five parts, with scores take the form of beadwork, videos, objects, graphic notation, historical belongings, and written instructions. During the exhibition, these scores are activated at specific moments by musicians, dancers, performers and members of the public gradually filling the gallery and surrounding public spaces with sound and action.
