Radio Silence

A live radio performance
conceived by Michael Rakowitz

Sunday, July 30, 2017

Independence Mall, Philadelphia

6—9 pm // free

The project launched with a live performance on Independence Mall in Philadelphia on July 30 (with a simulcast on PhillyCAM TV), with a special radio event to follow, broadcast on WPPM PhillyCAM radio and other community radio stations across the country, and distributed nationally by PRX (Public Radio Exchange). The project can be seen as an alternative form of public art — trading the street corner for the public airwaves, and representation via images for evocation via voice and sound. Partners include Warrior Writers, Prometheus Radio project, and PhillyCAM.

We had a great day on Independence Mall for the live broadcast of Radio Silence. Radio episodes coming soon!
