| PMP | ‘the listening room' – conversation
The NewBridge Project
Saturday 19 August, 5pm

Members: FREE / Non-Members: £3

For this salon style event everyone is invited to come along to discuss the role of located & performance-based sound in the contemporary sonic arts.

Jez Riley French will be on hand to present a talk on some of aspects of his work with extended listening & recording, and to highlight some key artists working with located sound. The talk will then lead us into an open conversation where everyone is welcome to contribute. Whatever your interest in sound come along with questions or comments for us all to discuss.

Is listening a political act ?

Is 'the sound of nature' a construction for human use ?

The role of misogyny in the distorted histories of sound cultures

The issue of originality vs integrity in the sound arts


anything goes....

------

Echoes of Abstraction II and The Bottomless Pit of Outros brings together newly commissioned work by artists Jamie Cook, Adam Goodwin, James Pickering and Paul Trickett, alongside highlights from the Laing Art Gallery’s modern and contemporary painting collection. The exhibition explores and is inspired by the legacy of abstract art, and has been organised in partnership with The Laing Art Gallery.

The partnership between the Laing Art Gallery and The NewBridge Project has been devised with the dual aim of supporting emerging artists from the region, as well as creating a new platform for The NewBridge Project at a time of both flux and renewed ambition as they relocate to new premises at Carliol House, Market Street. The exhibition will be accompanied by events as part of Practice Makes Practice, an artist’s development programme initiated by The NewBridge Project and run by artists for artists.

This project has been made possible with the support of the Newcastle University Institute for Creative Arts Practice.

This event is part of Practice Makes Practice, an artist development programme run by artists for artists. Practice makes Practice focuses on developing artistic talent and equipping artists with the necessary skills to manage their practice, bridging the gap between art school, studio practice, the gallery and beyond.
