Scat - Sonia Boyce: Sound and Collaboration

Solo show at Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts). 2013
Date: 5 June, 2013 until 27 July, 2013
Curator: Iniva
Organiser: Iniva

Sonia Boyce’s Scat was “Presented across the public spaces of Rivington Place, Scat explores how we experience sound, collectively and intimately

From the press release, “Scat, presented by Iniva, brings together two immersive video works for the first time with The Devotional Collection, Boyce’s archive and collective memorialisation of black British women in the music industry. As a result, the exhibition places a spotlight on her interest in the archive as arts practice. ‘Just the very act of putting something in an archive suggests its future use is beyond the control of the past. But we don’t have to settle for the past as it is presented. The past is not fixed’.

Scat was curated by Inviva - Tessa Jackson, Teresa Cisneros and Sonia Hope, and ran from 5 June - 27 July 2013.
