Vibe Check
Artist Neven Lochhead creates a four episode radio-fied version of his exhibition, "From the Vibe Out"

Vibe Check is a radio art project made in relation to Neven Lochhead’s solo exhibition From the vibe out at Agnes, as well as its attendant learning experiment involving a group of local artists. Over the span of four half-hour, bi-weekly episodes, Lochhead will transpose the compositional tactics and languages of his exhibition’s two-channel video installation to CFRC’s left-right stereo signal. Panning between a blend of synthetic voice, midi-instruments, field recordings and guest interviews, Vibe Check conjures a set of real and imagined polyvocal exchanges as sonic scaffolding for an institute to come.

Listen to the broadcast Wednesdays bi-weekly 21 April–2 June, 4:30–5 pm on CFRC 101.9 fm. After airing, it will be transcribed and archived on Digital Agnes.

Meet the Artist

Neven Lochhead

Neven Lochhead is an artist and curator working with video, sound, music, performance and installation. His own artistic work draws from traditions of durational moving image and performance practices, the employment and conventions of text-on-screen in video art and cinema, and compositional strategies of minimal music. From 2017–2019, Lochhead developed his exhibition-making practice as curator of Knot Project Space, a venue in Ottawa he established as part of his role as Director of Programming at SAW Video Media Art Centre. Through this discursively operated space, Lochhead produced exhibitions and performances while working closely with local, national and international artists, as well as a series of lectures, learning contexts, residency platforms and off-site public art projects. Residencies as an artist include the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2015) the Artist Research Laboratory in Como, Italy (2014). He received an MFA in Art Video from Syracuse University in 2016.
