Laura Gracia has been awarded Arts Council funding for an upcoming exhibition and event series 'Sounding D.i.Y' to take place across London in April - October 2017.
Exhibitions, Workshops, Talks, Concerts, Catalogue & Record
The aim of the exhibition is to present different works in the gallery space, as well as, the contribution to engaging audiences with a workshop. The precariousness of artistic means will be solved with a new curatorial methodology that integrates different activities under the same concept. Here the exhibition, concert, and workshop are all under one framework for action. So, its main interest is to reach audiences in an educational and participatory manner. The exhibition is proposed to be in the gallery space at least one week during the period April – September 2017, and it is supported by different events. The events accompanying the exhibition Sounding D.i.Y will take place in various venues. In some cases, there will be a workshop; meanwhile, other venues will support another type of practices. Due to the combination, the activity can reach more audiences and incorporate more artists.
The exhibition pretends to highlight the D.i.Y practices in front of the capitalist industry. Thus, represents an imperative change in the prototyping of musical instruments and sound objects that have effectively set as a major creative impulse in our century. Sounding D.i.Y. works with almost thirty artists in the field of handmade culture and promotes the efficiency of the results attained, either aesthetically and ideologically.
