£7 / £5 concession
Artist Sonia Boyce gives a lecture on her own practice and long-term interest in sound in the context of her exhibition Scat.
Sonia Boyce works in a wide range of media to address contemporary urban experience and the relationship between sound and memory. Boyce rose to prominence in the 1980s for her work questioning racial stereotypes in the media and in day-to-day life. Her more recent work has shifted to explore social practice and collaboration, with the audience as an integral part of the artwork.
In Scat, Boyce explores the significance of sound in art through the presentation of two video works and through The Devotional Collection, a multi-media archive she has built which charts the history of black women in the music industry.
