Pay What You Can

The work of our artists is valuable and our events cost money to produce, but we also want them to be as accessible as possible. Therefore, we offer you the opportunity to pay what you can for this event.

River Rooms
New Wing

A new series delving into the influences of British-South Asian artists. Curated and hosted by Imran Perretta.

The Listening Party series brings together an array of artists and musicians, each exploring the unique sonic and visual cultures that underpin their practice. In conversation with Somerset House Studios resident, Imran Perretta, the artists will explore their deepest cuts, from music videos obsessions to unreleased album tracks, each meditating on the influences that have shaped their identity and their creative output.

For the first event, Imran will be talking to Paul Purgas, a multidisciplinary artist working with sound, performance and installation. Paul is also one half of Emptyset, a London/Berlin based production project formed in 2005 with James Ginzburg.

The Listening Party Series culminates in an event at the Deadhouse in July, with a curated line-up and exclusive sets from the participating artists.
