Resonance, our collaboration with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision’s RE:VIVE initiative, is a full day of workshops, music and talks exploring new contexts for contemporary church music. Having announced the music programme- with Kali Malone, Martijn Comes and NYX- and the workshop, we now draw your attention to the discourse programme. Anikó Ouweneel, Martijn Comes and Kali Malone will join RE:VIVE’s Gregory Markus for a panel exploring the artistic, ethical and historical questions that accompany the use of and presentation of contemporary art in sacred spaces. Join us on Saturday 30th November. The talks will begin at 17.00 and end around 18.15.
In conversation with Martijn Comes and Kali Malone, Anikó Ouweneel
This conversation will dive into the works of Martijn Comes, Kali Malone and curator Anikó Ouweneel. The conversation will explore the musicians’ affinity for instruments most closely associated with religious spaces, the impact that the space has on their art and extrapolate the compositional and conceptual vision of each artist and the societal, historical and ethical impact that comes with the revitalisation of sacred spaces.
