Curation for International Women’s Day 2015 British Music Collection

WomensdaylogoI am very pleased that I have been chosen for the curation of an online exhibition for Sound and Music and the Google Cultural Institute. The exhibition is for the British Music Collection for International Women’s Day on 8 March 2015. I want to highlight new works by living composers and artists and want you to be part of it.

Here is my call out:

Using the idiom of “A wo (man)’s work is never done”, I am exploring what might be considered, ‘feminist’ and ‘radical’ –  from everyone who considers themselves to be on the margins – artistic, social, cultural, political. I am specifically interested in finding:

1) ‘Unfinished’ pieces 2) Noise based, Dada, Fluxus, ‘nonsense’, multi-lingual, poetry, radio, video and text sound works, and graphic scores. I want to highlight work that is on the fringes of contemporary, new music scenes and interweave this with archived works from the British Music Collection at the University of Huddersfield. My intention is to make this archive broader in it’s outlook and  I encourage sound makers and musicians to register their works with the British Music Collection. Your work will also be highlighted on the Usurp website.

For your work to be considered for the exhibition, you will need to register with the British Music Collection website by 2nd March 2015 be a member of PRS (or equivalent) and have some You Tube links for me to view. Full guidelines (check the details) and how to register:  http://thecollection.soundandmusic.org/article/add-your-work-collection

Once your work is online, email me your details: poulomi@usurp.org.uk http://www.usurp.org.uk/exhibition/womensday
