As the second event in our fourth series ‘Sounding’ explored the work of artists who engage with music and sound and the subcultures that form around them.
In dialogue with the other events in a series exploring themes of sitelessness, nomadism, transience and temporary occupation of spaces, the event investigated how subcultural and short-term events can act as parasitic cultures that use a flexible ‘open’ space for a specific purpose. Taking place alongside Barbara Kruger’s exhibition, the event sought to occupy Modern Art Oxford through sound, drawing on references to the itinerant and subversive subcultural practices of underground music, sound systems, raves, music festivals and graffiti culture.
