Spill Radio | Curated by Tatiana Mellema
Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery
University of British Columbia
Sound production and editing by Joshua Stevenson
https://belkin.ubc.ca/events/spill-radio/

Spill: Radio is a weekly radio show and podcast that anticipates, extends and enriches the themes of the Spill exhibition.

This project engages radio as a site for the relational study of ecosystems and their processes that register the hyper-financialization of the biosphere’s resources. Destabilizing vision as the privileged mode of understanding, Spill: Radio seeks to practice ways of listening to the intangible, the submerged and the sensuous in order to imagine and think with our world more complexly. By attending to sites of extraction with artists, writers and community organizers, Spill: Radio considers ways that the transformation and contamination of the environment are connected to universalizing settler-colonial logics, and the emergent possibilities of collectively listening.”
