Echoes of Dissent (Vol. 2): Trevor Mathison & Nkisi

23 SEPTEMBER, 2023 – 17:00

To mark the closing weekend of Trevor Mathison: From Signal To Decay: Volume 4, argos presents a special event with Trevor Mathison and Nkisi. Highlighting two distinct yet related approaches to radical Black sound and its interweaving aesthetic explorations, both artists respond to and extend Mathison’s exhibition.

This is the second iteration of a series of gatherings gravitating around the question: How to think of the sonic as a site of dissent? It also indicates the launch of Trevor Mathison’s second record on Purge Records, which is called From Signal to Decay, Volume 5.
