On the occasion of Living With Ghosts, curated by Kojo Abudu at Pace Gallery in London, Pace Live will present a sonic lecture by Dr. Hannah Catherine Jones, artist, scholar, and conductor and founder of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra.

Encompassing language, music, and technology, Dr. Jones’s practice centers on ideas of inclusivity and decolonisation through sound-based performance. Held in partnership with Art in Mayfair, this sonic lecture will take place outdoors in the gardens of Hanover Square, activating the gallery’s local community. An after-hours viewing of the exhibition in the gallery will precede the sonic lecture from 6 – 7 PM.

I am speaking here of a historical condition of immense spatio-temporal disjunction, of a here that always remains entangled with a there, of a now that always indicates the shadow of a then and a could-be.
