Free Jazz III. Sound. Walks.

Sound walks. Machines listen. We are living through unusual times. Collaborative and experimental by nature, Free Jazz III. Sound. Walks. builds upon its past iterations—activating and challenging our common understandings of exhibition-making and the use of space. The loss of physicality through increased virtual interactions during the Covid-19 pandemic has invited us to (re)claim space with the body in mind to avoid its disappearance, as well as creating a renewed appreciation of the outdoors and a heightened consciousness of shared space and resources.
By reflecting on a different kind of body awareness, Free Jazz III. Sound. Walks. will address common life, collaboration and communality in times of social distancing. Embracing sound and walking as powerful ways to transcend distance and bring people together, Free Jazz III features several artists who have been part of NTU CCA Singapore’s exhibitions, residencies, and programmes since 2013, a concrete manifestation of community as well as an invitation to continue to explore the possibilities of a research centre for contemporary art together.
