Cecilia Wee and Hayley Newman
Subway Sect is a new radio series, produced by Maria Bartolo and CR’s Eliza Williams, which is airing on Resonance FM, London’s art/experimental radio station, over the next six weeks. The shows aim to explore the complex relationship between art and music and take the form of a series of conversations between artists, musicians, writers, designers, djs and music video directors.
The shows go out each Wednesday at 1pm on Resonance (104.4 FM or online at www.resonancefm.com) and we’ll also be bringing you transcripts of highlights from the shows each week on the CR blog.
On this week’s Subway Sect, artist Hayley Newman is in conversation with broadcaster and curator Cecilia Wee, who co-curates the monthly inter-arts social occasion Rational Rec. Hayley is most famous for her performance art, and has exhibited and performed at galleries including the Camden Arts Centre, the Barbican, and Matt’s Gallery in London. The two discuss the influence that music has had on Newman’s work, as well as some of her most significant performance works. The interview was recorded in London earlier this year.
