Disco Hospital: Safe and Sound
Feb 11, 2014, 11:30am-1:30pm
Andrew Zealley is a Toronto-based artist whose work expands beyond audio and music methods to inform mixed disciplines and media. His practice has been situated at the shifting nexus of HIV/AIDS, queer identity and the body since 1990. For his talk at York University, Disco Hospital, Zealley speaks to issues of sound, non-Western healing practices, queer shamanic identities and the pathways leading to his research. Zealley’s audio installation, Nature: This Is A Recording, is in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada. He has recordings published by labels Art Metropole, Fine & Dandy, How To Explain Silence To A Dead Hare, Old Europa Café, Public Record/Ultra-red, Tourette Records and Vague Terrain. Zealley holds an MFA in interdisciplinary studies from OCAD University.
