Telephone exhibition

Thank you everyone who went to visit Telephone and contributed to its success.

The first red telephone kiosk designed in 1924 by renowned architect Giles Gilbert Scott was the site for four new sound works commissioned by Measure. The historic structure installed under the entranceway to Burlington House, Piccadilly was the only wooden prototype made of this iconic design.

Marking the 90th anniversary, Measure presented a programme of sonic compositions by UK-based artists. Presented consecutively artists Holly Pester,  Aura Satz,  Dan Scott and  Lawrence Abu Hamdan each probed the cultural role of the public telephone, its technological design and its relevance as a site for solitary conversation within a bustling central London setting.
