Artist Workshop: Ear-Cleaning Tour with Carmen Papalia

Friday, November 15, 2013, 2:00 p.m.

The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Mezzanine

Ear cleaning is the practice of gaining awareness of the state of a soundscape by temporarily plugging the ears before listening. During these ear cleaning tours, artist Carmen Papalia leads a group of participants who are wearing earplugs to a number of noticeably different acoustic environments. Tour participants only remove their earplugs once they have reached a scheduled destination—at which point they will be lead through focused listening exercises.

In conjunction with the exhibition MoMA Studio: Sound in Space

This workshop is free but tickets are required and may be acquired beginning at 1:00 p.m. on the day of the program in the Cullman Building lobby. Each tour is 45–60 minutes. The same workshop is held at 2:00 and 4:00 p.m., so please sign up for just one.
