• Voices

    Kunstinstituut Melly
    Witte de Withstraat 50
    June 13–August 23, 1998

    In Paris a while back, Christopher Phillips had the uncomfortable experience of organizing a panel of visual artists and sonic artists—i.e., composers—only to discover that they didn’t know how to talk to each other. “Voices” attempts to redress that: it deals, says Phillips, with artists who use the voice “as material to be worked with and examined.” Featuring ’70s and ’80s pieces by Vito Acconci, Geneviève Cadieux, Gary Hill, and Jochen Gerz, recent work by Kristin Oppenheim and Pierre Huyghe, as well as commissions from Judith Barry, Janet Cardiff, and Moniek Toebosch, the show will provide plenty to see. At the same time, these works can be expected to speak loudly. June 13–Aug. 23; travels to Fondació Joan Miró, Barcelona, Sept. 17–Nov. 1; Le Fresnoy, Tourcoing, France, Feb.–March 1999.
