The Score Research Cluster attends to relationships between art, site, sound and decolonization. The research-creation team was established through their participation with the exhibition Soundings.
Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts is a traveling exhibition curated by Candice Hopkins and Dylan Robinson, and organized by Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Queen’s University, Canada and Independent Curators International (ICI). The exhibition and tour are made possible, in part, with the generous support from ICI’s International Forum and the ICI Board of Trustees. Additional support has been provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter Program, the Isabel and Alfred Bader Fund of Bader Philanthropies, the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Kingston Arts Fund through the Kingston Arts Council, and the George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund at Queen’s University.
This project forms the first of many collaborative research-creation endeavours to explore how artworks, performance and/or ceremony may represent multiple and complex notions of land, territory and sovereignty. The concept of the score as protocol, the practice of deep listening, and the embodied effects of sound as it delineates a territory are critical questions to be posed with UBC and its communities of scholars, students, artists, performers, and publics.
