Come Hither Noise presents eight Australian and international artists, each with contemporary approaches to the concept of sound.

“Our first-ever exhibition featuring sound presents a fabulous cross-section of artists. Come Hither Noise is stimulation for the senses” says Jim Cathcart, Director of Fremantle Arts Centre.

Mark Brown’s interest in the history of Fremantle and specifically the South Fremantle Power Station produces a resonant shrine to our electric past while Elvis Richardson’s hypnotic yet playful television test patterns provides a gentle contrast.

Poetic video works by John Conomos and Sam Smith span vast and colourful landscapes, whilst a three-part collaborative piece by Sriwhana Spong heightens the relationship between sound and sight.

In contrast, Richard Crow’s work is presented as part of a radio broadcast during the exhibition.
