The Listening Party: Paul Purgas
A new series delving into the influences of British-South Asian artists. Curated and hosted by Imran Perretta. For the first event, Imran was in conversation 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 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. Next up: Nabihah Iqbal on 25 May.
