THIS IS A VOICE
Wellcome Collection 183 Euston Road London NW1 2BE
14th April - 31st July 2016
THIS IS A VOICE creates an acoustic journey through art, sound and film to capture the elusive nature of the human voice. From its origins within the body, to the sounds ringing in our heads, this exhibition celebrates the oral and the aural, with live performances in the gallery each day.
The exhibition features the work of artists and vocalists including Joan La Barbara, Imogen Stidworthy, Sam Belinfante, Enrico David, Meredith Monk, Marcus Coates, Anna Barham and Emma Smith, and visitors can add their own voices to the mix as part of an interactive new commission by electronic musician Matthew Herbert.
THIS IS A VOICE is the latest in Wellcome Collection's established and growing programme of contemporary art displays, supporting the creation of experimental work relating to health, medicine, life and art.
