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. “

Field Trip 3 – Edinburgh And The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

For this week’s episode Alice and Amy finally went on their ‘sister trip’ up to Edinburgh, where they checked out the ‘Beyond Realism | Dada and Surrealism‘ exhibition at The National Scottish Museum Of Modern Art. We do love a bit of surrealism and it was great finding some familliar artists work and learning about some new ones (well, new to us because surrealism is an old movement).
