It sounds like quite the occasion

Sound Thinking Symposium at the Surrey Art Gallery on Nov. 19.

Most people associate art galleries with looking, but this is not the only experience.

Artists also create exhibitions with sound to make for museum and gallery visits that shift experiences of what is being viewed.

The Surrey Art Gallery (13750 88 Ave.) is hosting its annual Sound Thinking Symposium on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 1:30-4 p.m.

Explore the sound of art and objects with artists Lee Hutzulak, Jay Bundy Johnson, Brady Marks and DB Boyko for Resonant Things: Sound and Objecthood on Canada’s West Coast.

Along with presentations, this event features a sound performance called Contactopus by Lee Hutzulak and Dave Leith that uses repurposed domestic objects, rudimentary handmade instruments and carefully curated materials.

Founded in 2008, Surrey Art Gallery’s Sound Thinking symposium is an annual event that brings together practitioners and professionals in the field of sound art.

The symposium features leading sound artists, scholars, and researchers in sound studies, along with visual artists who use sound as key components of their practice, as well as musicians who experiment with the limits of music and sound.

Admission is free.
