From September 14, 2017 to February 25, 2018, MAD presents Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound, a multi-component exhibition featuring interactive installations, immersive environments, and performing objects that explore how the ephemeral and abstract nature of sound is made material.

Bringing together over twenty artists, Sonic Arcade explores sound as substance, framing it as an interdependent material that is physically crafted and transmitted through electronic circuits and signals, radio waves, and resonant bodies that create encounters that are not only heard, but felt.

Sonic Arcade assembles artists, designers, and performers who utilize sound as a material, activating its potential to shape space and environment, while drawing out the ability of the auditory to provide a fresh perspective on how surroundings, and the body, are perceived and engaged,” said Shannon R. Stratton, MAD’s William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator.

Sonic Arcade activates three gallery floors of the Museum, and also expands into the stairwell and Turnstyle Underground Market at the 59th Street-Columbus Circle subway station below the Museum, resulting in an expansive auditory experience that affects how space is navigated and perceived.
