Six Artist Group Show curated by Gabriella Nugent - Hand to your ear, Part 1 (presence/surplus)

Emalin is pleased to announce a two-part group exhibition entitled Hand to your ear curated by Gabriella Nugent. Moving beyond conceptions of sound as a sensory quality, Hand to your ear treats sound as a haptic and corporeal experience.

Part 1 (presence/surplus) explores the connections created by sound between people and across geographies. In doing so, it examines sound as a strategy of contact, of being seen and heard by others. If sound entails an experience of visibility, Part 2 (noise/silence), opening February 2022, will consider its inverse: silence and opacity.

Artists - Alvaro Barrington, Nikita Gale, Jasper Marsalis, Alison O'Daniel, Malick Sidibé & Dominique White
