Triple Canopy Omniaudience

Triple Canopy, Omniaudience

For the Hammer Museum’s 2018–2019 Public Engagement residency, New York-based magazine and editorial collective Triple Canopy, in collaboration with Los Angeles-based artist Nikita Galeconsiders the act of listening, posing a number of questions relevant to our cultural and political moment. What are the settings in which speech and sound can be heard and have a meaningful impact? How has our ability to listen changed with the development of new technologies for synthesizing, transmitting, capturing, and quantifying expressions? How can we listen in ways that make us more receptive to one another and ensure that a plurality of voices can be heard?

Titled Omniaudience, the residency revolves around gatherings comprised of listening sessions, conversations, and performances, featuring contributions by a wide range of artists, musicians, performers, and scholars. Episodes occur at the Hammer Museum and partner institutions in Los Angeles, along with related events in New York City and elsewhere.

Triple Canopy’s focus on listening—or hearing with intent—is tied to a longstanding concern with the modes of distracted viewing and reading that proliferate online and that characterize the attention economy. The magazine’s residency at the Hammer is a cornerstone of Two Ears and One Mouth, a forthcoming issue of the magazine that addresses how we speak and listen, and who has the right and capacity to be heard.

Triple Canopy's Public Engagement residency at the Hammer Museum is organized by Anne Ellegood, senior curator, with Nika Chilewich, curatorial assistant.
