Episode 59 – Mikhail Karikis at MIMA with Elinor Morgan

For this week’s episode the girls went back along to the wonderful Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art and had a chat with Senior Curator Elinor Morgan about their newest exhibition, For Many Voices by Mikhail Karikis. This exhibition is a survey of Karikis’s work over the past 10 years, and it massively employs the use of sound, documentary-style video, and a community focus.

“He employs listening as a form of activism, tuning into voices that operate beyond mainstream frequencies. In the past decade, he has shifted how he works, from creating a space in which others participate in the work to one in which they become co-producers. The resulting projects highlight alternative modes of solidarity and action, while nurturing attention, dignity and tenderness. “
