Hear and Now
A unique event where visual art and music sit side by side, sparking your imagination and enticing you to look again, with new eyes. Showcasing four new pieces inspired by The Whitworth collection, Psappha invites you on a musical adventure through the gallery, stopping off along the way to experience each new work performed live by world-class musicians.
Film, photos and animation also inspire the rest of our programme. Played alongside Joshua Frankel’s award-winning film, Plan of the City imagines the architecture of New York blasting off into outer space and resettling on Mars!
5 Hofer Photographs takes inspiration from Evelyn Hofer’s eclectic photos of 1960s Dublin which will be projected as part of the performance, and History of the World in Seven Acts prompts the viewer/listener to experience the natural ebb and flow between colourful geometric animation and music.
This performance, supported by Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts programme, is promoted by Rachel Swanick as part of the Here and Now wellbeing project.
