The Score

Performance Program—Sat 21 Oct
Curator Jacqueline Doughty

The Score is an exhibition taking performance scores as a starting point to consider the ways art leaps from the sonic to the visual to the kinaesthetic and back again.

A meditation on that intangible moment of translation between two completely different forms, The Score will span three floors of the Ian Potter Museum of Art, and will feature international and Australian artists from the early 20th century to today alongside examples of dance and music notation.

A special Festival-commissioned performance program will accompany the exhibition on Sat 7, Sat 14 and Sat 21 October.

Artists: Pia Borg, John Cage, David Chesworth & Sonia Leber, Roy de Maistre, Fayen d’Evie, Marco Fusinato, Charles Gaines, Michaela Gleave, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Nathan Gray, Helen Grogan, Ludwig Hirschfeld Mack, Yuki Kihara, Shelley Lasica, Dylan Martorell, Angelica Mesiti, John Nixon, Sandra Parker, Mia Salsjö, Charlie Sofo, Sriwhana Spong, Christine Sun Kim & Thomas Mader and Danae Valenza.
