We are pleased to announce the twelfth in our series of talks analysing and contextualising exhibitions through the personal accounts of the curators responsible, co-organised with Whitechapel Gallery, London.
On 24 November 2016 musician, author and curator David Toop will discuss ‘Sonic Boom: The Art of Sound’, which took place at the Hayward Gallery, London in 2000. Drawing together practitioners across improvised music, performance, sound design and the visual arts, Sonic Boom’s presentation of ‘sound combined with visual art’ has been identified as the first major UK exhibition of sound art.
