Alumnus Julian Day in 'Jamming with Strangers'
BY Catherine Fisher, November 24, 2021
Alumnus Julian Day ‘20 is a featured sound artist in the upcoming project, Jamming with Strangers. This ongoing event kicks off December 4, 2021 from 2-4 pm at Casula Powerhouse near Sydney, Australia.
This exciting series asks the question: what does it feel like to connect with people through music? Such an inquiry is especially potent after our last 18 months of isolation.
Jamming with Strangers shows music communities as spaces of intimacy, nourishment, and connection. By focusing on these relationships, the exhibition reveals the role creative communities play in influencing broader social cohesion.
This series incorporates new artwork commissions and workshops, as well as live events. Other artists featured in Jamming with Strangers are: Carla & Lisa Wherby, David McDiarmid, Gillian Kayrooz, Joanne Saad, Kerry Toomey, Kevin Diallo, Ladstreet, Leila el Rayes & Justine Youssef, My Le Thi & Azo Bell, Tina Havelock Stevens, and Troy-Anthony Baylis.
Julian Day has presented work at Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery, Royal Academy of Music, Cafe Oto, MASS MoCA, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery of Modern Art, Institute of Modern Art, Artspace and Sydney Opera House. Their work has been acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and Orange County Museum of Art, USA and has featured in the California Pacific Triennial, Asia Pacific Triennial and Prague Quadrennial.
