Making Space III: Launching the Ocean

In partnership with EMUS (Experimental Music Sydney and 107 Redfern

Making Space is the latest public program from the Sydney Environment Institute, and this time, we’ve added a twist. This off-campus series partners with 107 Projects to ask what happens when performers, artists and academics approach the act of ‘making space’ hand in hand.

Join us for final event in the Making Space series as we ‘Launch the Ocean’ with the release of two new books: Coral Empire: Underwater Oceans, Colonial Tropics, Visual Modernity by Ann Elias and The Aesthetics of the Undersea, coedited Killian Quigley and Margaret Cohen.

The conversation between the authors hosted by Professor Maria Byrne will be preface by renowned Sydney-based sound artist Gail Priest. The authors will then respond to the piece through
language from their own books.

Sound duo Baptism (Charlie Sundborn and Solly Frank) tie into this conversation as the lead you through to the reimagined gardens of 107 with the aquatic spirits and sing their drowned songs.
