Acts of Air: reshaping the urban sonic, is an online exhibition for outdoor participation.
Curated by Lisa Hall for CRiSAP, Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice research centre at University of the Arts London, the exhibition brings together 14 artists based around the world: Agnes Paz, Anna Lann, Anna Raimondo, Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti, Catherine Clover, Cedric Maridet, Colin Priest, Jacek Smolicki, Julieanna Preston, Kate Brown, Raheel Khan, Vagné, Vitório O. Azevedo and Yara Mekawei.
The exhibition invites you to reshape your urban sonic present by enacting the 14 sound works directly in urban spaces. Each artwork invites a sounding out, a performance, a site specific listening or engagement in the streets, under bridges, by water fountains and extractor fans. They offer a means to explore and interrogate our cities of sound, and can be enacted and activated anywhere around the globe.
Rewire is digitally hosting this exhibition and encourages your activation of these art works in the streets of The Hauge throughout the festival. Visit the Acts of Air online exhibition to choose an artwork and location. After your performance / enactment, share a 'trace' of your experience @acts.of.air instragram with the hashtag #ActsOfAirRewire
On Thursday 6 May, 3 pm - 5 pm CET Curator Lisa Hall will be guiding a small group of participants through an online workshop to enact some of the artworks together across The Hague in our various locations. Register to participate or listen out on the streets for performances taking place at this time.
