Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent 

When: Jan. 13-Feb. 18 2017
Price: Free

You'd be forgiven for taking a break from the post-election news for your sanity's sake. But there's no better way to tune back in than with the opening reception of Power Plant Gallery's Soundings, a sound exhibit that features digital audio works by more than twenty artists through Feb. 18. This politically charged exhibit covers front-page themes including climate change, migration, and incarceration, and includes a programmed schedule of special listening times for specific artists throughout its run. You'll hear the album We Lost Half the Forest and the Rest Will Burn This Summer by Postcommodity, a collective based in the Southwest, before its inclusion in this year's Whitney Biennial. And French Afro-futurist Kapwani Kiwanga's "Tongue" unpacks the loss and transformation of cross-cultural transmission. North Carolina-based artists Kirsten Stolle and Hong-Ân Truong are also included, as well as Duke experimental and documentary arts MFA alumni Jonna McKone and Mendal Polish, who guest-curates a Third Friday event on "the body and queer listening." —Chris Vitiello
