Sexing Sound: Aural Archives and Feminist Scores will bring together a selection of audio, flyers, scores, documentation of performances, and zines of women’s sound work in the last two decades with historical references extending back to the 1960s. Intended not as a survey, but rather an animated peek at materials from archives including ABC No Rio, the Fales Library at New York University, Franklin Furnace, Her Noise in London, the Interference Archive, the Museum of Modern Art Archives, and Ubuweb. The exhibition will include an installation by Marina Rosenfeld and materials on Johanna Fateman, Kathleen Hanna, Alison Knowles, Annea Lockwood, and many others, as well as performances by artists Emma Hedditch and Ginger Brooks Takahashi. The exhibition reception will take place from 6-8pm on February 21 with a set by JD Samson, following a symposium about Music Cultures, Audio Practices, and Contemporary Art.
Cosponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Seminar on Images and Information, the PhD Program in Art History, The Graduate Center, and the Division of Humanities and Social Science, The College of Staten Island.
