Somerset House Studios guest curates the tenth annual Wysing Polyphonic. Considering the legacy of Wysing Arts Centre as a place where artists meet and experiment, the 2019 programme explores connection beyond the physical: connection as a channel of communication; an incantation, returning, or heralding; the calling on an ‘other’ or unknown to understand different worlds and possibilities.

Beatrice Dillon

Johannesburg’s queer art collective FAKA will be in residence at Wysing throughout August collaborating with Akinola Davies on their new film commission for the Studio’s Gallery 31. Joining an already rich line-up including ZULI, Beatrice Dillon and Jesse Darling, FAKA will perform a very special set weaving elements of the film work with existing material. Studio artists Marija Bozinovska Jones, hmurd and Jacob Samuel join the bill, alongside Quantum Native’s founder Brood Ma. And Mun Sing, the juddering new solo project of Giant Swan’s Harry Wright, closes the Amphis stage ahead of new Hyperdub signing Loraine James.
