WHISPER SESSIONS, the programming arm of FRONT 2022, offers tools to rethink solitude and social gatherings. Our title — which references mycelial networks, whisper networks, and ASMR as a form of non-visual stimulation — highlights goals of listening deeply, and amplifying cultural research interwoven with the 2022 curatorial approach. WHISPER SESSIONS take the form of live and asynchronous events: parties, reading groups, games, rituals, cooking shows, recipes, playlists, and more. Inverting the institutional order, the series features artists and culture producers beyond categorization.
WHISPER SESSIONS are organized by Associate Curator Meghana Karnik and Curatorial Assistant Lo Smith, with evolving guest contributors.
