The Body and Queer Listening 

When: Fri., Feb. 17, 6 p.m. 2017

The solitary act of immersing yourself in sound becomes communal on Third Friday at Power Plant Gallery in the American Tobacco Campus. Currently on view—actually, make that on hearing—is Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent, an audio exhibit ranging from experimental works to podcasts dealing with climate change, the diasporic imagination, mass incarceration, and other current sites of cultural conflict, oppression, and erasure. For one night only, exhibit contributor Mendal Polish, a graduate of Duke's experimental and documentary arts MFA, curates and hosts The Body and Queer Listening, which integrates works by nine artists into a group-listening rite. "We will come together in the dim light to listen to one another," Polish writes. "We will convene, yearning to hear queer voices." Visit the CDS Porch blog to read Polish's thoughtful, emotive essay on the event (—and search for the #F17 hashtag on Twitter to learn why the gallery is only serving drinks already in its inventory rather than buying any more. —Brian Howe
