Rebel Souls

curated by David Gryn & Max Reinhardt

MIRA at Art Rio, 26-30 September 2018

TRAILER https://vimeo.com/291832957

Rebel Souls is the artists video and sound program for MIRA at Art Rio, curated by David Gryn, Daata Editions with sonic accompaniment from Max Reinhardt, musician, DJ and presenter of BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction.

Rebel Souls used as its artwork selection inspiration – artworks, sounds and ideas that emanated from the rebellious and radical zones of the 1970’s – from the discordant sounds and vision of the Female Punk Artists and the rhythms, anthems and spirit of Tropicalia. Like previous projects in Moscow, Miami and London, the Gryn and Reinhardt collaboration takes the form of an artist’s moving image curated compilation, using the music and sound within the artworks as a catalyst for developing a soundscape filled with music and sonic interventions that reflects on the selected artist video program.

EXPO SOUND

The Afterlife Will Have Everything

CURATED BY SASKIA HUBERT FOR DAATA EDITIONS

TRAILER

Installed on the /Dialogues Stage within the exposition hall, the EXPO Sound program features a curated election of works by Daata Editions (https://daata-editions.com)—an online platform for the sale of commissioned artist video, sound, and web art editions—launching new artworks by select international artists. Additionally, a select group of artists and alumni of the School of the Art Institute Chicago are included in the 2018 program via Dr Giovanni Aloi, the SAIC Liaison.

PROGRAM STATEMENT
The capacity of voice is in flux. Powered by the rise of artificial intelligence and a growing aspiration for human embodiment, the role of voice requires us to shift perspective. To go beyond the human. Acknowledging the role of speech as it exists from new perspectives, from that of the machine. The first work, Maria Antelman’s Sin-Taks, represents a key node in this trajectory. Using spoken word, Antelman represents the perspective of search engine information processors, demonstrating a piece composed of stop-words and non-words, filtered out by search engines to help accelerate the process of harvesting information. Highlighting this distinctive method of processing information is Stephen Vitiello’s piece The Waves, which obliterates any component of human speech. The narrative—a reading of Virginia Woolf’s eponymous book—is methodically translated into a floating atmosphere of drone sounds, terminating arrays of soft distortion.

Of course, soon the afterlife will too have everything. From this vantage, young perspectives on the role of birth and death are woven together in Thora Dolven Balke’s YD4. The artist presents an introspection, driven by a selection of voices that bear semblance with one’s internal monologue, to offer both comforting and disruptive ideas to the listener. The absence of oral communication and its reconstitution within the somatic discourse of performance is reflected in Main Tool is Dummy by artist duo FlucT. The corporeal exchange draws on rhythm and nonlinearity, as commonly exerted in their work. Confronting the listener with a rich visual picture, as if embedded within the arrangement of sounds, the performative aspect of the duo is within touching distance.

The involuntary politicized voice is a facet that emerges within Matt Copson’s audio pieces. Exposing hate speech within the concealed environment of a phone call, Copson illuminates the anonymity of the perpetrator to reawaken memories about acts of discrimination; those often captured on video and spread through social media platforms.

The nature of a place solely captured by the voices that take place inside of it is John Skoog’s work. His exclusive approach to field recording within Marijuana Mars and Marlboro, rejecting the traditional execution of the medium to capture both environmental and human sounds. This selection is woven together through an explorative composition by Marina Rosenfeld that revisits ‘perceptual sound field reconstruction’ as developed in the AT&T Bell Laboratories. This technique pursues an authentic reproduction of sound as it was experienced live with a calculated array of microphones to capture spatial sound. Siting the past of today’s urbanized Bermondsey as a place of retreat, tidal rhythms of flooding and burning, polyphony, and palimpsest is surveyed in Fay Nicolson’s work Spa Songs. Drawing on concepts of Swiss Composer Émile Jaques-Dalcroze, who established the musical experience through movement, she crystallizes an integrated musical encounter between eight performers into the fabric of vocal history.

These recently commissioned works for Daata Editions are paired with sound pieces produced by current students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Jenny Boyles, Xiaolong Fang, Jack E Jacob, Yitong Lu and Kevin McGrath / Yu Nong Lin. With artists Anthony Janas and Andy Slater, High Concept Labs. Installed at the /Dialogues Stage within the exposition hall, the EXPO Sound program will provide a dynamic interlude to the panel programming at the 2018 edition.

David Gryn, Sound and Technology Curator, about If So, What?

David Gryn, Sound and Technology Curator, about If So, What?

By Abby Margulies

“I think about audience as much as I think about how to support artists.” Says David Gryn, who is speaking with me in the lead up to the opening of Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB) about curating film programs, his thoughts on the upcoming fair in Miami, and his new role as Technology and Sound Curator for If So, What?. Gryn, who is Director of Daata Editions and Artprojx, is also going into his 7th year as curator for film and sound for ABMB, and is a renowned expert in the field of film, digital media, and sound curation.

Right now, Gryn is hard at work for ABMB, which opens this week. This year’s program takes as its theme the universal language of dance, and explores the relationship between music and movement. The program will include three films by artists Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Jen DeNike and Tin Ojeda, as well as a series of short films presented by the Chicago Film Archive in collaboration with Chicago-based gallery Corbett vs. Dempsey.

“The goal,” said Gryn, who has dedicated his career to elevating and creating a platform for film and digital art, “is to encourage galleries to show the mediums that they don’t really bring to art fairs or find easy to sell. And the result is that it often raises the profile of the work and the medium.”

For the sound component of the program, Gryn is working with artist Hans Berg to program surround sound in the 160 speakers in SoundScape park, part of New World symphony. The sound element was a component that Gryn introduced into ABMB a few years ago, and which runs each evening before the film programming begins.

One of Gryn’s favorite aspects of the program is that the film and sound portion of the fair is open and accessible to everyone. “At the screenings there’s a big mix of huge art collectors, homeless people, and families from Miami,” said Gryn. “They are all equal to me; that mix is interesting to me. I’m trying to be accessible to as many people as possible.”

Gryn is in the business of empowering and providing a platform for artists. He is the Director of Daata Editions, a platform that he developed with art collector Anita Zabludowicz. Daata Editions commissions artists’ video, sound, poetry, and web-based works, and makes them available for purchase by museums, fairs, hotel brands, and private collectors, among others. But as a curator, and someone who ultimately wants to see these artists make a living, he is also in the business of audience engagement.

“When I view an audience I am always looking at how they are engaging with the work. I think if I’m not doing the right thing it’s not always good for the artwork.”

For Gryn, his commitment to curating film and creating a platform for artists working in video and digital mediums to present their work serves a larger mission. “I am trying to empower a medium, to make sure there is a marketplace connectivity,” said Gryn.

Working with If So, What? is a natural fit for Gryn, who said that he is very excited to be working with and supporting an innovative new art event. “We have a mutual belief in supporting the artists, in being honest, truthful, and diligent about how we operate with artists.”

In addition, Gryn sees Silicon Valley as an interesting new frontier. “I think there is a change going on and a growing interest in art. It was hitherto dominated by the dot com sensation, but I think that has moved on and people are becoming interested in other ways of being,” said Gryn. “The art gold rush is starting to take place, and people think there is more opportunity on the West Coast to gain traction. Being supportive of a new art fair model excites me.”

With regards to his plans for If So, What, Gryn is still holding his cards close. He is planning to work with some of the artists that he has commissioned for Daata Editions, as well as to collaborate with artists and designers that he has been interested in partnering with, some of whom are working in virtual reality, and others who are experimenting with new and unconventional surfaces on which to display video work. He is also interested in drawing on themes relevant to the Bay Area, from the South Bay’s long connection to the tech industry, to San Francisco’s history as a hub for LGBTQ communities.

Part of Gryn’s mission is to help communicate the medium of film as an artwork, which an event like If So, What? provides a perfect opportunity to do. “I’m trying to delineate that this is an artwork more than anything,” says Gryn. “Boundaries are becoming ever more blurred and I’m trying to make sure that the boundaries are at least acknowledged. The function of art is itself. It is not a marketing tool to sell something. It is nothing other than to be itself.”

Ultimately though, it is always about the artists, and Gryn is committed to helping them along – by elevating their medium and creating a perfect forum for audiences to engage with their work.

“Artists are leaders of cultural thought, of intellectual thought, and they are often undervalued and under-looked. Even at art fairs things get forgotten, which is why I’m excited by a new fair that thinks about artists in a different way.”

EXPO Sound at EXPO CHICAGO curated by Daata Editions

EXPO CHICAGO partners with Daata Editions and Navy Pier to present the inaugural EXPO Sound program (September 13–17, 2017). Curated by Daata Editions, an online platform for the sale of commissioned artist video, sound and web art editions, launching new artworks by selected international artists—the program featuring artists: Larry Achiampong, Tracey Emin, Leo Gabin, Rashaad Newsome and Hannah Perry, will be complemented by works from artists represented by EXPO CHICAGO 2017 Exhibitors.

“Artist sound—like artist video, performance and digital work—is being increasingly exhibited due to the dynamic and experiential nature of the medium, paired with its all-encompassing and ephemeral presence,” said Daata Editions Director David Gryn. “The artist as performer, musician and entertainer is ever sought after in our global calendar of art events, but somewhere in all of this is the truth and essence of art making, with the outcome of very real, tangible and brilliant works of art.”

Sound is truly art for everyone. You can try and contain it – but when it is released it purvades our every pore. 

Last year in walking around the Navy Pier – I realised that I couldn’t escape from the piped pop music of Britney Spears through the public speaker system, which for the area of a food mall makes sense, but for the path leading to an art fair – not so much sense. So I mention this, in my incredulity, to Fair director Tony Karman and he simply responds “why don’t you curate Sound for 2017 ?”

So this year EXPO Sound is born, playing artist sound works primarily from Daata Editions commissioned artists as well as selected works from Expo Chicago gallery submissions. 

The program will be installed throughout the public speaker system at Navy Pier—along the South Dock, within the exposition entrance, and on the /Dialogues Stage.

2017 EXPO Sound Artists:
Larry Achiampong | Daata Editions
Tracey Emin | Daata Editions

Soundcloud Compilation Playlist

http://daata-editions.com http://artbasel.com http://www.fountainheadresidency.com/

This compilation of sound artworks will be played nightly during the fair from 6pm until 8pm – when the Film program starts.

In addition to the program of films, this year marks the third edition of Surround Sound, a program through which we have commissioned artists to create or reform work into Surround sound installations. This year’s artists include: Molly Palmer, Sussanah Stark, Ain Bailey, Zoe Buckman, Jonathan Montague and A.K. Burns.

The Soundscape Park experience is unique in the artworld — and a well known location for Miami locals — featuring a huge 7000 sq ft screening wall, with a 160 speaker surround sound system. In the screening area Art Basel provides large beanbag cushions – several people can lounge per cushion. It provides a great calming antidote to the frenetic pace of the Art Fair in the day and the plethoras of other events and parties at night.

NSD/TSD by Ain Bailey

NSD/TSD is a work exploring the natural acoustics of the New World Symphony Centre. This will be achieved by generating audio material from the environments internal soundscape, and composing a multichannel sound work from the resulting audio for presentation on the 160 speaker Surround Sound System in Soundscape Park. The project’s genesis stems from an ongoing research project entitled ‘AGORA’ which takes as a starting point the acoustics of sites such as churches, cinemas and gallery spaces, where people come together to form transitory assemblies.

Ain Bailey is a sound artist, living and working in London, UK. Her current practice involves an exploration of architectural acoustics, live performance, as well as collaborations with performance, visual and sonic artists. Among these is performance/visual artist Jimmy Robert, who commissioned Bailey to create a composition for his 2016 show ‘Desendances du Nu’ at the CAC-Synagogue de Delme, France. Bailey has exhibited and performed both nationally and internationally, and ‘Oh Adelaide’ her collaboration with the artist Sonia Boyce, has shown in London at Tate Britain and the Whitechapel Gallery, and The Kitchen, New York, to name but a few international art spaces. Bailey is also a doctoral scholar at Birkbeck, University of London.

One Round by Zoe Buckman

The audience stand amidst the sound of a speed bag being rhythmically hit in a boxing gym. The sound of the leather hitting the wood: hard and succinct, builds to an almost aggressive quality as it is picked up in surround sound, yet the repetition of this specific sound allows for an almost hypnotic or meditative experience.

The sounds one hears in a boxing gym have a testosterone-heavy quality to them. However during the time Buckman has spent in these spaces, she has drawn parallels between the strength, endurance and confidence needed to survive there, with female-centric experiences such as childbirth.

Zoë Buckman (b.1985, Hackney, East London) is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sculpture, photography, embroidery and installation, exploring themes of feminism, mortality and equality. Buckman’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions including Every Curve at Papillion Art, Los Angeles; Present Life at Garis & Hahn Gallery, New York and group exhibitions internationally including Truth to Power, a group show at the Democratic National Convention, Philadelphia, Making and Unmaking, at Camden Arts Centre, London, curated by Duro Olowu; For Freedoms, at Jack Shainman Gallery, NYC; Game On!, at Children’s Museum of Arts, NYC; To Be Young, Gifted & Black, Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg South Africa.

Leave No Trace (Side A) by A.K. Burns (Callicoon Fine Arts)

“Leave No Trace” is an analog audio project by A.K. Burns that is a limited edition vinyl record with a custom plastic bag, a pair of nitrile gloves and a poem. The recording combines ambient environmental recordings, the artist’s own voice, sounds generated from found materials and an old electric guitar. Leave No Trace, is part of a cycle of related works that use science fiction as a point of departure to rework relationships between bodies, nature, technology, territories and resources. The title refers to wilderness ethics as well as pointing to ways one leaves a mark, is codified and recorded.

A.K. Burns (b. 1975) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Burns is a 2016-17 Radcliffe Fellow through the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, where she is developing an ongoing project, Negative Space, a cycle of multi-media installations. The opening episode A Smeary Spot, debuted at Participant Inc, NY in the Fall of 2015. A new iteration will be exhibited at the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, September 2016. The work was initiated with the generous support of a Creative Capital Foundation Visual Arts Award and additional support for this work is being provided through the Education Department’s Spring 2017 Research & Development Season at the New Museum, where Burns is currently in residence. The residency will culminate with an exhibition opening January 2017.

Plundaphonic by Jonathan Montague

Ubik Radio Music Festival, Sound Installation, 2016
Using the narrative of the science fiction paradigm, the notion of self is questioned through sampling the audio back catalogue of my past. To then propose a future self of automated sounds in the format of a radio broadcast. Included is one selected track from the Radio show.

Using space as a material with the motion and affects of sound, I investigate the spatial narrative created via the inhabitation of the viewer, and the perception of sound. My background in Architecture informs the way in which work can inhabit a place and the spatial parameters of its context; giving insight into the way in which boundaries and intersections of spatial territory could be manipulated then occupied. Through investigation into the sonic potential properties of space and sound, conditions of an affect laden automated future, are addressed through access to a dialogue positioned in giving agency to dismantling notions of a predefined future. In my work I use my past as a material to sculpt and modulate, to create a future narrative. With reference to a speculative notion of self-identity, I generate work through a process of dis and re-association with the sampling of self.

Sirens by Molly Palmer
 (Supported by Fountainhead Residency)

There are sounds that follow you from place to place. In the cities while you wait for sleep, the sirens are a voice that makes a map – a long hand sketching lines between the buildings. This is a story and a song, but it is also a dream and a drawing. Sometimes a sound takes on a shape and lies down in your skull. An amoebic symbol stretching out from your bed to the edge of the night. The stereo version of this track uses binaural sound and benefits best from listening with headphones. 

Molly Palmer is a London-based artist who works within and between the media of music, installation, choreography and filmmaking. Using handmade props, sets and costumes to produce layered video worlds, she green-screens her protagonists into parallel places, where music, gesture and dialogue form cyclical narratives that explore the strangeness concealed within ordinary things. Palmer graduated from Royal Academy Schools this year, where she won the Gold Medal. Recent exhibitions and screenings include Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, RA Schools Show 2016, Royal Academy, London, Talk So I can See You, curated by Pil & Galia for the Czech Cultural Foundation, London, Premiums, Royal Academy, London, The Fade : touring solo show at CCA, Glasgow, Enclave, London and Torna, Istanbul, and Mono 5, curated by Rafal Zajko at The Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton, Herðubreið Theater Cinema, Seyðisfjörður, Bikini Wax, Mexico City and MUPU, Oaxaca.

The Wheel (featuring Don Hay) by Susannah Stark 

The Wheel, featuring vocals by London-based artist/musician Donald Hayden, is a recording in two parts that run parallel, intersecting across each other and finally together at once and on top of each other in a sculptural experience. Low-fi effects create a sense of echo and disorientation, a technique that was used in dub tracks in the 70s to bring about a metaphoric space of freedom and change, punctuated by layers of disembodied, digitised voices, like those that occur in the contemporary urban environment. This history is revisited to expose and uncover elements of language embedded in our everyday experience. The Wheel is about slowing down, peeling away words on the surface: the language of advertisement, spam, media and public manipulation, telesales and broadcasting, highlighting the flow of things – language – traded in a capitalist marketplace, inviting people to look beyond the constraints of the work and the language that is presented to them.

Susannah Stark is a scottish artist and printmaker, working with multimedia installation and sound, incorporating or involving issues of voice, power and reappropriation. This is part of an ongoing process of exploring how much of the western identity can be constructed from diverse popular sources and how the mouth may be the modulator for such regurgitations and formations. Her work explores the slippages between objects and voices translated from digital experience, to highlight and challenge material hierarchies.
