Tinnitus, Auditory Knowledge and the Arts - Drawing by Patrick Farmer

Open Call to commission new work by two UK-based artists, as part of the AHRC project, 'Tinnitus, Auditory Knowledge and the Arts'.

The research project will interrogate the relationship between tinnitus and the creative arts. The project is co-ordinated by Dr. Marie Thompson (Open University) and Dr. Patrick Farmer (Oxford Brookes University), and supported by the British Tinnitus Association.

As part of the project, OVADA (Oxford, UK) will host an exhibition in October 2021, which will critically examine how both tinnitus and ‘auraldiversity’ can inform artistic, curatorial and exhibition practice. Selected artists will explore processes which interrogate how the diverse and unpredictable nature of tinnitus can inform curatorial and exhibition practice, as well as the commissioned artwork itself.
