One hundred new sound works have been produced by artists from all over the world. Selected by our curators and art institutions worldwide, the artists have been invited to submit a sound work, taking its stimulus from themes evoked in Bruce Nauman's Days, presented concurrently in the lower gallery, as part of our season on sound.
SOUNDWORKS embraces the ephemeral nature of sound, and presents an online platform that doubles as a virtual exhibition space. This site aims to make the works internationally accessible, a place to explore the genre as a medium which is simultaneously inclusive, interactive, and subversive. It includes a wide range of audible approaches by artists who have been working with the medium for many years, as well as artists taking their first venture into the sonic arts.
Please note: we will be temporarily closed for the Olympics Monday 23 July - Friday 17 August, reopening Saturday 18 August.
Our SOUNDWORKS online project: www.ica.org.uk/projects/soundworks will be accessible for the duration.
