Vogue'ology. Organized Listening: Sound Art, Collectivity and Politics

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor
Thu, 11/18/2010 - 6:30pm


The sound-art collective Ultra-red presents “Organized Listening: Sound Art, Collectivity, and Politics” as part of their exhibition Vogue'ology (the Aronson Gallery, Parsons, November 17–30), which examines the possibilities for establishing an archive of the House and Ballroom community. Based on the concept of collective listening, the exhibition features fragments and phrases from House and Ballroom oral histories and vogue descriptions.

For the exhibition Vogue'olgy, members of Ultra-red consider the intersection of sound and politics in a public event with artists, union organizers, historians, and representatives of Ballroom ministries. The audience is invited to engage with sound as an object of reflection and with listening as a means of political organizing.

Facilitators include: Dont Rhine, member of Ultra-red and Robert Sember, 2009–2010 Vera List Center Fellow and member of Ultra-red.

Participants include:

Curator-filmmaker Tim Leyendekker present for discussion with Alex Waterman (A Necessary Music) and critic Jim Supanick.

Although our built environment is not necessarily designed to facilitate our personal longings and desires, its spaces certainly enable us to court, fight, make love, get drunk, debate, urinate and walk our way back home from that embarrassing dinner date. Taking his works still (2006) and the Healers (2010) as a starting point, Rotterdam-based artist Tim Leyendekker curates a program that focuses on films that deal with the Western urban landscape as a witness to intimate social interactions and the de/reconstruction of the cinematic narrative.
