The fourth episode of the “Arts and Humanities Conversations at CUHK” Series 2020-21 is “Beyond boundaries of visual and sound – How four artistic projects extend our understanding of inter-sensory perceptions”, organised by the Faculty of Arts of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). It will be live streamed on 17 April 2021 at 11:00 am via Zoom and the Facebook page of CUHK Faculty of Arts.

Conversation on “How four artistic projects extend our understanding of inter-sensory perceptions”

In recent years, the line between different artistic disciplines has been increasingly blurred. New forms of cultural events and exhibitions, together with the emergence of communication technologies, have provided freshly opened avenues for artists to explore novel ways of widening their scope and communicating with audiences by adopting an interdisciplinary approach to their artistic practice. These artistic projects often involve multiple sensory modalities, engaging audiences in smell, touch, sound and sight through complex interactions. The emerging practice of artists employing interdisciplinary and intersensory strategies has raised questions about how rapidly the meaning and function of art are changing. This talk will examine how four artists and researchers from the fields of the visual arts, music, performance and curatorship have sought to open up possibilities for integrating knowledge and methods from different disciplines to foster audience engagement and intersensory experience.
