Whisper Sessions #3
How do we protest if we can’t get out of bed?

April 29, 2020
5:30 – 7:00 PM

A virtual reading room with Meghana Karnik and Lo Smith on the relationship between healing and power. No prior reading or expertise necessary – we will digest the texts together. Skim in advance: Sick Woman Theory by Johanna Hedva & Manifesto for Maintenance Art by Mierle Laderman Ukeles.

More details coming soon. RSVP here for more information.

WHISPER SESSIONS, the programming arm of FRONT, are a flexible platform to activate hidden networks, offering tools for gathering and solitude. Our title ⁠— which references mycelial networks, whisper networks, and ASMR as a form of non-visual stimulation ⁠— indirectly highlights goals of engaging conversation, listening deeply, and finding ways to collaborate.

WHISPER SESSIONS take the form of live and asynchronous events: parties, reading groups, games, rituals, cooking shows, recipes, and more. Inverting the institutional order, the series amplifies ongoing research by artists, cultural omnivores, and culture producers beyond categorization. If you would like to pitch a WHISPER SESSION, please contact curatorial@frontart.org or DM@fronttriennial.
