Through February 18, 2017, the Power Plant Gallery presents Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent, a broadcast audio exhibition exploring how artists navigate the depths of sound experience and embody protest, politics, and dissent in digital sound files. As part of the exhibition, a special Third Friday Durham Listening Session, called, The Body and Queer Listening, will be held on February 17, featuring works curated by filmmaker, sound artist, and MFA|EDA alumni Mendal Polish. The program begins at 6pm and runs approximately 1 1/2 hours. Only beverages will be served at the reception.

Mendal Polish is an alum of Duke's MFA in Experimental Documentary Arts Program, and taught a class for the Arts in the Moving Image department called LGBTQ Cinemas last Spring.

Polish is currently a teaching artist and empire resister in Philadelphia.
