Sonia Boyce on the Political Sounds and Symbols of “Bella Ciao”

‘I’m interested in diverse voices, not just a unified choir. There’s an element of chaos, with three professional singers who couldn’t hear each other but somehow stayed in harmony....This diversity and acknowledgment of difference is crucial, especially now.’

Heavy Metal: Daniel Turner At Hauser & Wirth DTLA

‘In the Middle Ages, Alchemy was a philosophical and proto-scientific inquiry into the possibility of transforming base metals into gold. By investigating and excavating site specific locations, we can say that Turner has succeeded with his art where others failed, in taking copper and striking gold.’
