Panel #1: Listening Awry
Jim Drobnick coined the term “listening awry” to describe attending to things from an angle, and from an “interested” rather than objective perspective. This panel brings together five artists (Jin-me Yoon, Suzanne Kite, Nathan Young, Joshua Rios and Anthony Romero) in M:ST’s biennial who listen awry to contest institutionalized histories. Crossing disciplinary boundaries as well as space and time, this panel will unpack the politics of aurality. For these artists, listening is inherently performative and has a distinctly social orientation. As Drobnick says, “We exist in a noisy ball, and we contribute to its racket; by listening awry we may also reflect upon the myriad meanings of murmurs and cacophony, and how the act of hearing is itself conscious, implicated, and subject to cultivation.”
Panel #2: wnoondwaamin | we hear them
Moderated by exhibition curator Lisa Myers
The exhibition wnoondwaamin | we hear them calls for the occupation of SOUND WAVES in exploring the capacity of these energies to access and be in conversation with human knowledge and memory. Through a discussion with artists Autumn Chacon, Melissa General and Suzanne Morrissette, this panel will consider the many resonances of sound in their art practices and reflect on their work in this exhibition. The discussion will bring forth concepts including the materiality of sound, what can be accessed through the transmission and reception of sound, and the politics of being, or not being heard.
