MoMA’s Major Sound Art Exhibition Is Coming, Yeaaaaah

April 5, 2013 | Marina Galperina

MoMA is launching its first major exhibit of sound art this summer. Finally!

The multidisciplinary exhibit will not only focus on sound pieces but also “architectural interventions” and “visualizations of otherwise inaudible sound” as well as explorations “of how sound ricochets within a gallery” and “a range of field recordings—including echolocating bats, abandoned buildings in Chernobyl, 59 bells in New York City, and a sugar factory in Taiwan.”

Wait, wait, wait… Chernobyl field recordings? SOLD. “Soundings: A Contemporary Score,” Various Artists, Aug 10 – Nov 3, MoMA, New York (Photo: ARTINFO)
