AGM 05 Silence [curating, art management]

AGM Culture 05 Silence [curating, art management]

29 Sep 2005 - 16 Oct 2005
AGM in 2005 was hosted by SOUNDplay Festival in the Latvian House Community Centre, Prefix Audio Gallery, and the Hacienda Club. AGM 05 explored the multilayered meanings and experiences of Silence - much more than something regarded as opposed to noise. Silence is used and understood in various ways according to context and social or religious customs. How do we experience and understand silence, especially in a 'noisy' context as a sound festival? In what way can silence be investigated and expressed with sound? What does silence sound like and does it at all exist? The invited artists were encouraged to address silence with different approach: urbanity, nature, politics, physical and psychological silence.
