Session 24 project
TAKE YOU THERE RADIO
May 30 - June 23, 2015
Opening May 29, 2015 at 6pm
We are pleased to present Take You There Radio, a temporary radio project as exhibition streaming on the internet. Take You There Radio aims to transport participants and listeners to another place on an individual and shared level— a type of metaphysical travel that has occurred within audiences since the birth of radio as a popular media. The project takes place in collaboration with four artists-in-residence and with the participation of interlocutors from long and short distances who will premeditate and improvise radio interventions.
The programming of Take You There Radio revolves around the core themes of space and time travel as experienced through altered states of consciousness, narratives of science fiction, utopian ideals, appropriation of socio-political topics by amateurs, investigation of sound in language and music, as well as radio station as a structure for predictable patterns with mysterious outcomes. Participants will create radio-specific art pieces in Grenoble using resources provided by the Take You There Radio curatorial team: a sound recording studio inhabiting the physical space of the Conciergerie, a resource center and listening room free to the public, and counseling from radio professionals as well as theorists from various fields. Along with the traditional radio schedule, improvisation will take place during the web stream broadcast in the form of prank phone calls, love letters, DJ sets, interviews, tutorials, and more. As part of the exhibition program, a series of workshops for local teenagers will be led by the curatorial team and invited instructors.
