The Hum – curated by Tzuzjj
The Hum is a group exhibition which draws its name from a phenomenon of unexplained tones or frequencies, the most notorious examples of which being the “Bristol Hum” and the “Taos Hum”. The exhibition features work that has a degree of mystique, folklore and tacit understanding, or that occupies/addresses the spaces in between things, i.e. voids and negative spaces.
For those who can hear The Hum it can be a very disturbing phenomenon.
There has been skepticism about whether The Hum exists.
Supported by Arts Council England, Islington Mill, Castlefield Gallery and Salford City Council.
