Through objects, performances, videos, and including new commissions, this group exhibition explores performative approaches to aural culture and oral history.


From Jumana Emil Abboud’s weaving of Palestinian folktales into contemporary life to Joe Namy’s interest in collectively performed sound and music, the artists in the exhibition employ different creative strategies to both conjure and challenge cultural memory.
