SOUND/IMAGE 2023 brings together a selection of international artists who embrace ideas of collaborative processes and shared creativity. While the individual artworks and installations take on board a wide range of conceptual concerns, they all explore the relationships between sounds and images, and the images which sounds can construct by themselves. The exhibition will run from 10th November until 16th December, 2023.

Special installations by Tony Hill and Christopher Speed will also be open for a limited time to the public from 10-7:30 on 11 November and 10 – 6:30 on 12 November. 

In addition to the exhibition, the SOUND/IMAGE Festival 2023 includes an intensive 4 day conference taking place 9th – 12th November. From over 340 submissions, the programme of complementary talks, screenings, loudspeaker orchestra concerts, and performances – bringing together composers, filmmakers, electronic musicians, live visual performers, researchers from all over the world to stimulate discussion, debate and engage diverse perspectives and new insights on sound and audiovisual practice.

To celebrate the publication of the new book on sonic creativity “Art of Sound: Creativity in Film Sound and Electroacoustic Music” and the launch of our new creative practice research facilities the “Shared Hub for Immersive Future Technologies” this 2023 edition of the festival celebrates works responding to the theme “Creativity Shared”.
