Sound and art come together at ArtScience Museum’s new exhibition, Orchestral Manoeuvres: See Sound. Feel Sound. Be Sound. The exhibition features over 32 artists and composers from eight countries, who explore sound through sculpture, installation and music.
Sound has been established as an artistic medium since the beginning of the last century. Orchestral Manoeuvres, curated by ArtScience Museum, celebrates this artform through the work of some of the world’s leading artists whose explorations of the sonic landscape encourage visitors to listen more closely to the sounds around us.
Orchestral Manoeuvres presents sound art projects, early music notation, experimental scores, noise-making sculptures, video installations and contemporary artworks. One of the key highlights is a presentation of the landmark artwork, The Forty Part Motet by Janet Cardiff, which will be showing for the first time in Southeast Asia.
Other artists in the exhibition include Song-Ming Ang (Singapore), John Cage (USA), Chen Zhen (China), Phil Collins (UK), Hsiao Sheng-Chien (Taiwan), Jeremy Deller (UK), Zul Mahmod (Singapore), Robert Morris (USA), Carsten Nicolai (Germany), Pauline Oliveros (USA), Yoko Ono (Japan/USA), Hannah Perry (UK), Luigi Russolo (Italy), Christine Sun Kim (USA), Gillian Wearing (UK), and Samson Young (Hong Kong).
Presented over nine galleries, Orchestral Manoeuvres is curated by Adrian George, Director of Exhibitions at ArtScience Museum, with Amita Kirpalani, Curator at ArtScience Museum. It takes visitors on an auditory and visual journey that expands how viewers think about, experience and understand sound. The show invites visitors to tune in, listen deeply, feel the vibrations and create their own personal soundtrack as they journey through a sonic landscape.
