Seeing Voices uses the Monash University Collection as a springboard for thinking through the voice and how it is visualised, employed and reimagined in contemporary art. In the exhibition, the voice might act as a metaphor for collective action, for speaking out against injustice and coming together in gestures of solidarity. It can be a marker of cultural and geographic specificity or the trace of disappearing language. It may also function like a spiritual medium; through its historical recording and archiving it time-travels to haunt the present.
