Viewing Voices: A Symposium Discussing the Use of "the Voice" in Cinema

  • 360 mins

Viewing Voices will explore methods of address and their contribution to both positioning voice and ‘giving voice’ in relation to subject, maker and audience.

With a particular focus on inner-voice, the discussions will examine how these methods articulate, materialise or pervert thought, memory and imagination.

The day begins at the Filmhouse cinema with a screening programmed by curator Ruth Noack. Presentations continue at the Traverse Theatre with an artist's talk from Imogen Stidworthy, a talk by art historian, writer and critic Dr. Susannah Thompson, and a live-research project by visual anthropologist Andrew Irving. The afternoon concludes with an open discussion.

Initiated by artist Lyndsay Mann. The symposium is developed in partnership with Edinburgh International Film Festival, and supported by Scottish Documentary Institute, LUX Artists’ Moving Image and Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh. [U]
