As an institutional resident at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York City, Mateo Galindo of Atomic Culture curated an exhibition of nine artists whose work is at the forefront of a new current in the art world, particularly with their engagements of sound. Wave Phenomena: Contemporary Strategies of Sonic Agency was on view from September 2023 to January 2024; it examined the use of sound as a catalyst for personal, political, spiritual, and environmental considerations. Michele Thursz invited Galindo to select a few artists from the exhibition and engage them in a conversation about sonic agency. He chose three artists: the founder of Black Monument Ensemble, artist and educator Damon Locks; Lakota artist and PhD Suzanne Kite; and Pawnee/Crow and Tulsa Artist Fellow Warren Realrider. These intimate conversations touch on the artists’ life experiences and how these moments affect their art.
