New commissions and exhibitions featuring sound and visual art. Created by Brent artists.

As part of Collective Rhythms we commissioned and supported artists to hold exhibitions related to sound and healing at the Metroland Gallery.

We worked with the 2022 group of Peer-to-Peer artists to hold a group show.

The 2023 cohort of Metroland Young Associates created an immersive sound exhibition in our gallery space. The exhibition was entitled We Were Here and included sound artworks created by the Young Associates through the course of the programme. These sound pieces were accompanied by video artworks, a zine, an exhibition programme, and several installation works all created by the MYAs.

Artist Bill Daggs was commissioned to produce a brand new exhibition especially for the festival. Bill’s exhibition Allegorhythms included handmade sound sculptures, rhythmic paintings, sonic compositions, and a collection of his moving image work. Through the run of the exhibition Bill also produced several events including a screening of his film works, an Artist Talk with Abbas Zahedi, and a live music event with a plethora of guests, musicians, poets, and artists.

We also hosted the first part of a new project from artist duo Amanda Camenisch and Therese Westin. Amanda and Therese presented a new exhibition entitled: You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but not the ripples of the time. The exhibition combined 5 large sound sculptures with a space for people to write down wishes, hopes and desires for Kilburn. The aim of the show was creating a healing soundscape for the community.
