Live Listen: Broad Domain
Get comfortable for this compilation of experimental radio and podcast pieces by producers who convey their rich interior landscapes in sound. This program proposes a counter-narrative to the nationalizing effect of broadcast; a conception of nationhood that is fluid, personal and abstract.
Artist List TBA soon!
Aliya Pabani is a Toronto-based artist and podcaster. Most recently, she was host/producer of CANADALAND’s arts and culture podcast The Imposter which was featured as one of the best podcasts of 2017 by CBC’s Podcast Playlist. Ben Cannon of the AV Club called it “…one of the finest, most compulsively listenable shows in the world of podcasts today.”
Aliya’s art practice deploys methods from design ethnography, tactical media and comedy to examine the ideological frameworks underpinning public systems and infrastructure. She performed with Public Recordings in CAPITALIST DUETS, and her work Corrections with Onyeka Igwe was exhibited as part of the 2018 Images Festival.
Located in John Labatt Visual Arts Centre at Western University, the Artlab Gallery is a vital part of the Department of Visual Arts. The Gallery is focused on projects that involve and respond to social and cultural issues, primarily supporting the research and practice of students and faculty. Each year approximately 14 projects and events are presented, exploring conceptual and experimental production that includes a wide range of mediums.
LOMAA is an emerging, enthusiastic and devoted non-profit artist-run collective that fosters collaboration, investigation and innovation by tapping into the talent and serving the needs of media artists in the London region.
