I Really Should... (4:57 excerpt) - unlimited edition

Editors: Judith Winter & Kelly Large / ISBN: 0 86083 063 2

MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) hosts QSL an artist’s project by Kelly Large.
As part of the pre-opening program MIMA will set up a temporary FM radio station that aims to relocate existing artist’s work and contemporary arts practice out of the gallery onto local air waves.
QSL will use the medium of radio to explore ideas and experiences of transmission and reception. Artists, curators, cultural theorists and local communities will be invited to respond to a play-list selected by Kelly Large from MIMA’s collection of artists’ sound works. The play list will record the personal activity of audition and function as the starting point for new work. Participants will be asked to use the resulting sequence of existing audio art ‘as a generator of activities’ (Nicolas Bourriaud 2002) from which to produce new contributions for broadcast.
