Spill: Radio


Spill is an exhibition of installations, live research, performance and radio programming at the Belkin Art Gallery on UBC campus from September 3rd – December 1st 2019.

From the Belkin Art Gallery website, “Spill: Response, curated by Guadalupe Martinez, re-centres the gallery as a site for embodiment, with visiting artist César in collaboration with Riley and Wyss. Throughout the project, Spill: Radio, curated by Tatiana Mellema, will present radio episodes in collaboration with CiTR 101.9 FM.”

Curated by Tatiana Mellema, the radio program will present weekly episodes that anticipate, extend and enrich the themes of Spill. Rather than educational supplement, the radio platform will provide its own critical space of praxis moving towards collective research. Interviews, readings, performances and field recordings will offer insight into artistic processes engaged with the land, territory, extraction and embodied performance. These episodes will carry forward influential work by artists, writers and community organizers – ranging from those resisting the Transmountain Pipeline expansion to artistic practices that engage with soundscapes of the land.”

Tune in to Spill: Radio on CiTR 101.9FM every Tuesday from 10-11am.
