Conversation with Sound Art Curators
chaired by Liora Belford and Jason van Eyk

How have curators helped advance investigations into the production, positioning, exhibition and reception of what we call Sound Art? How has their treatment of a diverse array of sonic practices enriched our modes of inquiry and means of knowledge mobilization?

Track 5 Co-Chairs Liora Belford and Jason van Eyk invite a diverse group of international Sound Art curators for an open, moderated discussion to answer these questions. Together, they will explore the critical histories, positions and strategies that inform their practice.

Panelists include Barbara London–MoMA's media art curator emerita; Arnau Horta–Barcelona-based curator/critic/researcher and collaborator with MACBA and the Reina Sofia; Dr. Salomé Voegelin–artist, writer and un-curator engaged in curatorial performances, London College of Communication; and RE:SOUND conference chair Dr. Morten Søndergaard, Associate Professor and Curator/Creator of Interactive Media Art at Aalborg University.
