July 6th - August 11th, 2023
Dayang Yraola (ACC 2012) is a curator for The Listening Biennial 2023.
THE LISTENING BIENNIAL brings together an international constellation of participating artists, musicians, and researchers, as well as institutions and collectives across the globe, to foster questions and experiences of listening. The Listening Biennial is conceived as a global project and aims at a decentralized structure where shared resonances and polyvocal manifestations can emerge across localities. This includes the commissioning and exhibition of audio works, experimental performances, and discursive events hosted and presented at collaborating institutions and venues, where listening and locality are accentuated, and cultural specificities contribute to a greater ecology of attention. From critical storytelling, experimental noise, and musical rapture to acoustic care, interspecies contact, and environments of sounded matter, the Biennial aims at fostering a listening world.
Activities for the Listening Biennial will happen at the University of the Philippines- Diliman (Quezon City, Philippines), Alitaptap Artists Community (Cavite, Philippines), Silpakorn University (Bangkok, Thailand), Multimedia University (Cyberjaya, Malaysia), on the air and online via DZUP.
