Enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and join Penn History of Art PhD and PennDesign MFA candidates for an intimate conversation inspired by the ICA exhibitions on view.

chukwumaa, Penn Design MFA candidate, leads a conversation that about the many ways that sound can imply real, imagined, and symbolic space. Prompted by the ICA exhibitions on view, chukwumaa will ask how sound is employed in relation to architecture and the body. We will look and listen for the ways in which sound evokes physical space, conjures history and memory, and is felt as a visceral, bodily experience.
