This is the UK premiere of Bruce Nauman's seminal work Days, a sound installation which presents a continuous stream of seven voices reciting the days of the week in random order. Fourteen flat panel speakers will be installed in the lower gallery, one voice emanating from each pair of speakers as the visitor passes between them.
As part of our season on sound, this exhibition presents one hundred new sound commissions produced by artists from all over the world. Selected by our curators and art institutions worldwide, the artists have been invited to submit a sound file, taking its stimulus from the themes evoked in Bruce Nauman's Days, which will be presented in the lower gallery during the exhibition.
Please note: We will be temporarily closed for the Olympics Monday 23 July - Friday 17 August, reopening Saturday 18 August
