This year long collaboration will comprise of workshops, lectures, open forums, and studio sessions to develop new participatory methodologies and a body of collaborative artwork.

Barry Despenza

Sound, Moving images and space are foundational cornerstones for Despenza's practice. Whether that is an emotional space or an architectural one, Despenza's aim as a sound/video artist is to make visible the imperceptible and to make the visceral become intangible. You will find that his work is centered on power structures that underlie the perception of what it means to be visually stimulated.
