Our editors round up 2019’s most anticipated exhibitions and events

SOUNDINGS: AN EXHIBITION IN FIVE PARTS
AGNES ETHERINGTON ART CENTRE, KINGSTON
JANUARY 5 TO APRIL 7, 2019

Audio exhibitions can be notoriously difficult to take in, but this exhibition, curated by Candice Hopkins (Tlingit) and Dylan Robinson (Stó:l?), attempts to avoid that with activations by a range of performers, players and publics alongside the material culture that records notation. Newly commissioned scores and “sounds for decolonization” test how sound works can act as tools in the service of decolonization, and with an accumulative approach and more than a dozen artists, it will bear repeat visits.

LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX, BB
AGNES ETHERINGTON ART CENTRE, KINGSTON
APRIL 27 TO DECEMBER 1, 2019

The year 2018 saw the return of relational curation, writing and art. But don’t get it twisted: relational art in 2018 wasn’t a cheap appropriation of Nicholas Bourriaud—it was a reappropriation. It was an awakening, a centering, of good love logics that have existed in non-European philosophies since time immemorial. On the tails of the relational art influx in 2018, Ociciwan core member Erin Sutherland and independent curator Carina Magazzeni will bring together several to-be-announced artists, coming from a variety of practices and life experiences, to continue this topical conversation about sxxy, relational art.
