Spill: Radio is a weekly radio show and podcast that anticipates, extends and enriches the themes of the Spill exhibition. For each week of Spill, performances and field recordings will be broadcast on CiTR 101.9 FM that offer insight into artistic processes engaged with the environment, extraction and embodied performance.
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.
Spill: Radio is curated by Tatiana Mellema and is presented in collaboration with CiTR 101.9 FM, with sound production and editing by Joshua Stevenson. Episodes for each week of the Spill exhibition will be aired on Tuesdays at 10 am on CiTR 101.9 FM and made available for you to download on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.
