4:30-6:00 p.m., November 6: ‘Sound is Promiscuous’:

In conjunction with the exhibition and performances, Call & Response is proud to present a talk around the act of listening, particularly locating sound as a spatial concern and contesting its power of
representation in contemporary society.

Joining us in the discussion are curator Cecilia Wee, and three of the exhibiting artists — Lawrence Upton, Dawn Scarfe and Tom Slater. The title of the talk, Sound is Promiscuous, is taken from Brandon Labelle’s analysis of auditory life and sound culture in Acoustic Territories.
