What does “creative resilience” mean for curators in the year 2019? One evening in April 2019, we decide to find out. Setting up a temporary recording studio in a poolside cabana, at a Miami Beach hotel, we sit down with a dozen curators and cultural producers to document their stories.

We revisit sonic encounters at the 57th Venice Art Biennale, when Italy was the first stop on our six-week Fresh Art International field expedition.

This episode features our experiences in the pavilions of France, Germany and Nigeria, and our walk through Egyptian artist Hassan Khan’s outdoor sound environment.
