CANCELLED - First Friday: Women in Sound Art and Experimental Music by crys cole

  • November 2, 2018, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

This lecture is cancelled due to unexpected circumstances.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience. 

cole will discuss the continually evolving history of female-identifying artists in the fields of sound art and experimental music. This history continues to be written as overlooked or ignored innovators and trailblazers from decades past are uncovered, recognized and championed. Their pioneering work leads to our contemporary context, with an abundance of female artists working within these fields.
