Canti Espositi is an exhibition of contemporary art and at the same time set design for a song festival. Or: it is a festival happening on three stages of which amplification systems are designed by artists. Over the course of two months, Gallery of Contemporary Arts in Opole will be filled with art pieces which consist of loudspeakers. On weekends, the same pieces will serve as artistic PA systems for concerts, performances, radio plays and films.

Loudspeakers and songs - inconspicious elements of our every day life discreetly inhabited by voices of human who are not or have never been present; tools of propaganda and erotic seduction; nooks and crannies controlled by electricity and teeth chattered and driving our ears crazy; simulations of collective experiences and inner voices more real than the voices from the speakers. In short - all that a proper festival needs.
