Soundscapes: Paintings

Find out more about the paintings that featured in 'Soundscapes'

Soundscapes commissioned musicians and sound artists to select a painting from the collection and compose a new piece of music or sound art in response. Immersive and site-specific, the exhibition encouraged visitors to experience these masterpieces in a new way, by ‘hearing’ the paintings and ‘seeing’ the sound.
