On 17 June, the Museum of Portable Sound held a private view for its latest temporary exhibition in its Exposition Space. Heave and Flow: Jessica Akerman Records Soundscapes of Labour & Play is a solo exhibition by artist Jessica Akerman, guest curated by Dr. Irene Noy of the Courtauld Institute, presenting a group of recordings that explore song and sound in the context of labour and play.
It was a sound art private view unlike any other, during which Museum Director John Kannenberg led a listening session, playing the recordings that make up the exhibition in their entirety – our audience was actually able to hear the sound at a sound art private view! This was then followed by discussion and Q&A with Dr. Noy and Ms. Akerman.
