The Audio Art / Recent Investigations and Becoming of Sound Art 04 training will be presented in five sessions that feature guests specializing in different perspectives and approaches to sound art. Moderated by Nicole Gingras, curator and author from Montreal, these meetings with guest artists will offer a diversity of approaches while providing food for thought on the place of sound in current practices in visual arts, sound art and kinetic art. In order to extend the conversation between the participants and the invited artists, texts or other documents will be used to complete this training. The curator wishes to reflect on the research processes of artists who are sensitive to the sound dimension in their practice.
This training will allow participants to examine hybrid practices in which listening plays a singular and determining role in order to better situate their own practice and to imagine future avenues.
Curator, author and researcher, Nicole Gingras develops dissemination activities independently and in association with various institutions (museums, galleries, artist-run centers, festivals). Her interest in exploratory practices in film and video, in sound art and kinetic art has resulted in numerous achievements presented on the local, national and international scenes: major exhibitions and programs, direction of singular works (monographs, artists’ books, reference works), analytical texts and interviews. The processes of creation, the notions of listening, trace and duration are the milestones of her research.
She has been collaborating with the FIFA, International Festival of Films on Art, since 2003, programming the FIFA Experimental section. In 2012, the Hnatyshyn Foundation awarded her the Prize for Curatorial Excellence in Contemporary Art. In 2020, she received the Concordia University Faculty of Fine Arts Teaching Excellence Award for a part-time faculty member.
