So I went to the National Gallery to see the Soundscapes exhibition. I’d heard a lot about this exhibition and I thought that the concept was great, but was interested to find out for myself.
So the way it was set up was that each room had a single painting together with the artist’s sound work for that painting. There were 6 actual pieces and a film about the overall concept where the artists talked about there work and how it had come about.
I think that the idea, the concept, and the process was great, but sadly more successful than the overall result. A couple of the pieces worked well but on the whole I didn’t think it was all it could have been, which was a shame really.
I’m glad that they try these things out though. That’s what’s important really.
