2018 SoundSpace Artist-in-Residence at the Blanton
Mendelsohn has created a performance with members of the Blanton Museum’s security staff, exploring the dynamics of listening closely. For the duration of the SoundSpace event, Gallery Assistants participate as performers, roving throughout the museum’s spaces, narrating what they see and hear. What does working in museum security do to your voice, or to the ways you observe your environment?
