KorSonoR - visual and sound arts
After two editions of Dance First Think Later, Arta Sperto continues her transversal explorations and creates a new exhibition-festival on the convergent field of sound and visual arts.
KorSonoR explores the resonances between sound and visual arts through exhibition, installation, in situ, performance, concert, video or cross-functional collaborations. KorSonoR aims to perceive, experience, understand how sound is inherent to the human body and to life, whether it is approached through the sensitive, the social, the technological, the space, the architecture, the town planning or the environment.
This exhibition-festival is born from the convergence between the transdisciplinary artistic explorations developed by Arta Sperto since 2020, and its affinities with the musical and artistic context of Geneva, in a spirit of complementarity.
