Switch on the Power! list of artistsSwitch on the Power! Noise and Policies on Music, curated Xabier Arakistain, brings together 28 artists from the world of art and music who employ similar performative and aesthetic strategies as a means to construct discourses that often convey alternative values and/or political critique. Through the various artworks and/or videographic documents, the exhibition highlights and explores the interactions between these artistic disciplines. In addition, other significant processes have taken place and continue to occur in the spheres of music and the visual arts, processes that are also of importance to the exhibition.
