Sounds Like Her


Sounds Like Her
New Art Exchange
14th October - 3rd January 2018

Curated with Christine Eyene, known for her enquiry into contemporary African art, gendered perspectives and nonobject based art practices – Sounds Like Her is a groundbreaking exhibition, set to broaden existing approaches to sound art, and to contest Eurocentric and patriarchal frameworks that have informed sound art practice and, arguably continue to dominate the scene today.

The project brings together seven women artists from diverse cultures, each exploring sound as a medium or subject matter: Ain Bailey, Sonia Boyce MBE RA, Linda O'Keeffe, Elsa M'bala, Madeleine Mbida, Magda Stawarska-Beavan and Christine Sun Kim.

Collectively the selected works represent sound in the broadest sense, exploring voice, noise, organic and synthetic sounds, rhythmic patterns, sonic structures and non-sonic materialisations of sound. The result is a varied exhibition of mixed media bringing together audio, immersive installation, painting, print, drawing, video, as well as interactive practice.

Sounds Like Her challenges restrictive social constructs of female voices. The exhibition represents new perspectives; re-framing how we experience the dynamic of sound as practiced by women from diverse cultures and gender identities.
