SOUNDTRACKS

Exhibition, SFMOMA, San Francisco, US.


From July 15, 2017 until January 1, 2018
Soundtracks is centred on the role of sound in contemporary art. Focusing on the perceptual experience of space, the exhibition offers opportunities for discovering public architectural features and galleries throughout the newly expanded building. Spanning sculpture, audio and video installation, and performance pieces made since 2000, the show takes its point of departure from key works in the media arts collection. Select pieces address the association of soundtracks with film scores in unexpected ways, while others take various approaches to visualising the relationship between sound and space. Moving beyond medium-ecific histories of sound art and electronic music, this presentation is cross-generational.
