Jason van Eyk

The European Graduate School
PhD Candidate
Although a trained classical musician, Jason van Eyk has spent nearly 20 years developing his career as an award-winning arts management professional with a passion for sound-based art. He has organized shows and public presentations for the likes of A-plus-A Gallery, The Canadian Music Centre, soundaXis, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche and Doors Open Toronto. He also has written essays, interviews and exhibition reviews for Musicworks Magazine and Coach House Books. Currently a PhD candidate at the European Graduate School, Jason’s research focuses on addressing the ‘deaf spots’ within historical and theoretical understandings of sound within contemporary art. He engages with the assumptions, divides and predispositions toward sound that constrain current curatorial thinking, thereby positing new approaches that can be employed by art institutions and their curators to advance the successful exhibition of such intermedial and multidisciplinary artwork.
