Hayward Touring Curatorial: ‘Listening’, Curated by Sam Belinfante (26 Sept – 11 Jan)

Winner of the 2014 Hayward Touring Curatorial Open, Sam Belinfante’s pioneering exhibition ‘Listening’ investigates the act of listening in contemporary art focusing on the crossover between the visual and the sonic and include a variety of media from drawings and sculpture to prints and video.

Works featured in 'Listening' will include Hannah Rickards' clap of thunder that has been stretched in duration and aurally dissected, recreated by musicians and morphed back into a thunderclap; an anechoic chamber by Haroon Mirza that silences the outside world; a new work by Laure Prouvost that choreographs a dialogue between lights and objects in the gallery space, as well as Prem Sahib’s throbbing inaccessible disco.

Ed Atkins will make a series of new drawings and Cardiff and Miller will allow us to eavesdrop on a cabin in a forest, while Katie Paterson presents the almost inaudible sound of a dying star. Listening is the third in the series of Curatorial Open exhibitions, supporting the work of independent curators based in the UK.

Artists include: Ed Atkins, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Mikhail Karikis, Ragnar Kjartansson, Lina Lapelytė, Christian Marclay, Haroon Mirza, Max Neuhaus, Katie Paterson, Amalia Pica, Laure Prouvost, Hannah Rickards, Prem Sahib, Anri Sala, Imogen Stidworthy and Carey Young.
