Quiet is an Action: On Being Silent and Other Lies – listening in with Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste

Interiority, opacity and quiet propose less explicit registers and alternative possibilities to representation in art practice. This is an invitation to make sense and not-sense together. We’ll give consideration to a shared listening and looking practice which employs both inaudible sound and darkness as socio-aesthetic devices in service of a broader liberatory cultural praxis: not-knowing together.

Join Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste in a conversation with Sara Jane Bailes that focuses our attention through his recent projects and artistic practice. There will be a collective listening exercise during this event. Please feel free to listen in whatever way you are most comfortable. Headphones might be useful but are optional.

Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste is a New York-based artist, composer, and performer. His practice broadly considers notions of errant relations structured through the utilization of, for example, sub-bass and darkness in the service of the imperceptible or the barely apprehensible. Toussaint-Baptiste received a Bessie Award in 2018 for Outstanding Music Composition and Sound Design. He has recently completed a Jerome Foundation Airspace Residency at Abrons Arts Center, New York and a Rauschenberg Residency 381 (2019). He has presented visual and performance work at MoMA PS1; Performance Space New York; The Brooklyn Museum; The Kitchen; Issue Project Room; The Studio Museum in Harlem; The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; FringeArts, Philadelphia; Tanz Im August at Hau3, Berlin; Stoa Cultural Center, Helsinki among others. Toussaint-Baptiste is a founding member of the performance collective Wildcat! and frequently collaborates with performers and visual artists including Will Rawls, Yanira Castro/a canary torsi, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, and André M. Zachery. He is represented by Martos Gallery in New York.

This event is part of Unsettling Sound: a conversation series, hosted by Sussex Performance Events and Research (SPEAR) and Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts
