Listening brings a group of international artists together to interrogate the act of listening in contemporary art.


This pioneering exhibition curated by Sam Belinfante, winner of the Hayward Gallery Open 2014, examines the crossover between the visual and the sonic and their complex relationships to the senses. The selected works range dramatically in duration from less than a second to six hours: hear a clap of thunder that has been stretched in duration and aurally dissected, recreated by musicians and morphed back into a thunderclap; eavesdrop on a cabin in a forest and listen to the almost inaudible sound of a dying star.

Listening spans both Firstsite, Colchester and Art Exchange, and includes artists Ed Atkins, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Mikhail Karikis, Ragnar Kjartansson, Lina Lapelyte, Christian Marclay, Haroon Mirza, Max Neuhaus, Katie Paterson, Amalia Pica, Laure Prouvost, Hannah Rickards, Prem Sahib, Anri Sala, Imogen Stidworthy and Carey Young.

A Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition.
