Notes on Communication: VOZ RARA

VOZ RARA is a season of public programming curated by Valerio Del Baglivo and Anna Santomauro, 2017 curators-in-residence at Grand Union. Responding to Grand Union’s 2017 public programming theme ‘Voice and Communication’ the two curators have put in place a series of workshops, screenings, performances and public talks looking at the use of voice as a cultural and political agent.

The programme will feature work by Hamish MacPherson, Sabel Gavaldon, Alex Martinis Roe, Jaume Ferrete Vázquez, Mikhail Karikis and Katarina Zdjelar.

The title VOZ RARA is inspired by the work of Catalan artist Jaume Ferrete Vázquez (in English “rare, unusual voice”) and it refers to exceptional uses of voice as metaphor and practice of collective participation.
