Announcing Whisper Sessions

Mar. 25, 2020
The programming arm of #FRONTart2021, WHISPER SESSIONS, are a flexible platform to activate hidden networks, offering tools for gathering and solitude. Our title ⁠— which references mycelial networks, whisper networks, and ASMR as a form of non-visual stimulation ⁠— indirectly highlights goals of engaging conversation, listening deeply, and finding ways to collaborate on the 2021 edition of FRONT International.

WHISPER SESSIONS take the form of live and asynchronous events: they can encompass parties, reading groups, games, cooking shows, recipes, and more. Inverting the institutional order, the series amplifies ongoing research by artists, cultural omnivores, and culture producers beyond categorization. If you would like to pitch a WHISPER SESSION, please contact or DM @fronttriennial.
