WALKER P. DOWNEY
I am a historian of modern and contemporary art writing mostly about sound art and acoustic ecology, and an Assistant Teaching Professor at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
In Spring 2023, I co-curated an exhibition at the New Bedford Art Museum with NBAM Executive Director Suzanne de Vegh. The show, titled “Sound in Space, Sound in Place,” features celebrated and emerging sound artists, field recordings sourced from New Bedford residents, and experimental sound works by my own UMass Dartmouth students.
