Sound Scene 2023: After The End

What comes “After The End?” Through interactive art installations, live performances and small group workshops, audiences may consider a future after white privilege, patriarchy, colonialism, ableism, climate catastrophe or just after breaking a habit or retiring of a particular turn of phrase. Whatever shape the phoenix takes as it rises, audiences are sure to take new inspiration with them after this one-of-a-kind interactive art festival held at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Sound Scene is the Washington, D.C. region's premier interactive sound and multi-sensory arts festival. This free (registration here encouraged), two-day event is open to the pubic, curated by the DC Listening Lounge audio arts collective and hosted by the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. In 2019 Sound Scene broke attendance records for the museum attracting more than 14,000 attendees over 2 days.

Sound Scene celebrates sound through audio art installations including sculptural works, headphone-based and multi-channel exhibits; our live stage features performances of dance, music, and spoken word; and our small group workshops invite audiences to explore acoustics, beat-making, sound production, sonic meditation, group improvisation, and more. Sound Scene features the creative work of artists from across the world.

June 3, 10am-5pm, June 4, 10am-5pm.
