During 2017 Wysing will be exploring ‘many voices’ across all our programmes under the over-arching title Wysing Polyphonic.
Through residencies, exhibitions, events, study weeks and study days, we will work with a range of artists to explore a diversity of contexts and positions to help better understand the role of art, artists, and arts organisations such as Wysing, at this moment of global political change.
Throughout 2017 we will provide both a platform for many voices, in particular those that have the potential to be over-looked in the current political rhetoric, alongside a range of ways that those voices can be heard. Building on a number of events during 2016 that explored alternative sites for community and activism, we will be seeking to work with artists whose work, or whose networks, empower and support diverse communities of interest. We will also be further exploring the role of radio, broadcasting, sound and listening.
