Resonant Spaces: Sound Art at Dartmouth

This fall, sound takes over Dartmouth College with large-scale commissions for an exhibition project featuring internationally renowned artists. Resonant Spaces: Sound Art at Dartmouth is the first exhibition of sound art presented by the Hood Museum of Art, and more widely, one of the largest group commissioning projects of sound art to date. It represents a crucial step in the creation of sound art through a diverse set of new, site-specific work located on the Dartmouth College campus, offering visitors a glimpse into the highly varied and imaginative world of sound art.

Center for What?

Object-based inquiry might not roll off the tongue, but it perfectly describes the core activity of the Hood. Objects hold myriad stories. Over decades, centuries, and even millennia these stories multiply, expand, and evolve. Through it all, the objects themselves remain, steadfast beacons of individuals, communities, and eras long gone.

A time to dream, a time to plan.

It started with a dream: build a museum with state-of-the-art classrooms, new galleries, and a great façade right on the Dartmouth Green. We dared to imagine spaces activated by students, faculty, and community members engaging with art on a daily basis.
