LiveBox welcomes new curator Matt Griffin

  • Location:

Matt Griffin has joined the LiveBox team as curator for sound art and performance. Matt Griffin is a Canadian sound artist and composer living and working in Chicago. He holds a BFA in Music from Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts and an MFA in Sound from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has curated programs for the Experimental Sound Studio, The West Coast Composers Symposium, the Two Can Play at That Game Festival (Chicago) and Around the Coyote. His work has been shown around the world, from Takaka Hill, New Zealand, to Regina, Saskatchewan. Matt also runs the experimental music record label Electricity is Magic.

In addition, LiveBox has an open call for “Subtitles” - a yearlong exploration of projects inspired by literature. Each 3rd Friday, hosted by ThreeWalls, will be unique combination of media, performance and readings. We are looking for video, new media, sonic and sound, performance, and literary work inspired by or evoking the writings of Edgar Allen Poe, Doris Lessing and Roald Dahl.
