Join us for a site-specific sound tour of the British Library and hear about the ideas in some of the public art on display
M J Long and Colin St John Wilson, the architects of the British Library St Pancras building, had a very personal relationship to the visual arts and not only selected the public art on display but also its placement. Following the idea that it is possible to imagine a sound world within ‘mute things’ (Toop, 2010) the tours will use recordings from the British Library Sound Archive to expand on the stories in works by artists such as Antony Gormley, R B Kitaj and Eduardo Paolozzi.
Curated by Jasmine Pierre and Catherine Smith as part of our Unlocking Our Sound Heritage project which aims to help save the nation’s sounds and open them up to everyone.
