Launching the Wysing Polyphonic residency programme and responding to Wysing's All Channels Open exhibition, this study day will consider what steps can be taken to "open the channels" and what is at stake in seeking to include "many voices".
For the study day, spring residency artists Pallavi Paul, Claire Potter and Raju Rage will be joined by invited contributors Taylor Le Melle, Annie Jael Kwan and Wail Qasim, all of whom will present a "resolution", a proposal for how institutions, artists and the public might ready themselves to confront 2017 with "all channels open". These resolutions will consist of short presentations, readings, performances or screenings to allow for an expansive and open discussion. Breaks throughout the day will allow attendees to visit the All Channels Open exhibition.
