The way in which we listen determines what we hear. Noise Museum brings together the work of seven contemporary artists to arouse modes of active listening and create a shared aural space within Heathcote Gallery. With listening and hearing central to their practices, these artists move across mediums of video, digital media, installation, text and sound, creating works that range from field recordings, sound visualisations, architectural interventions, through to intimate assemblages exploring the relationship between acts of listening and personal histories. This exhibition works with the environment, creating an immersive social space and challenging the boundaries between sound, noise, music and art. Curated by Alisa Blakeney.

Parallels of Place
Megan Christie, Lyn Nixon, Ian Williams and David Ledger
July 29 Jul – 3 Sep :Opening Night 28 July
Parallels of Place looks at the intersection between aesthetic concerns of landscape imagery and the psychological impact of place. Bringing together a unique combination of artists, varying in age, gender and art practices the exhibition presents new perspectives on place. Lyn Nixon, Megan Christie, Ian Williams and David Ledger explore alternative perceptions of landscape and change through photography, furniture, painting and installation. Parallels of Place brings together a body of works that reflect the artists shared interests in the role of remediated imagery in representing, simulating or creating place.
