Artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White work across art, music and information networks, and seek to challenge default mechanisms for the authorship, ownership and distribution of art. Their ongoing project Open Music Archive is an initiative to source, digitise and distribute out-of-copyright sound recordings and is a vehicle for collaborative projects exploring the material’s potential for reuse. Recent projects include: Once Heard Before at Whitechapel Gallery (2019), Everything I Have Is Yours (2019) at Salford Museum and Gallery / Whitechapel Gallery, Play it Again! Use it Together for Victoria Gallery & Museum (2018), Auditory Learning for British Art Show 8 (2015- 16), Premonition 2037 (2016) for KALEIDOSCOPE Modern Art Oxford, Local Recall at Hallé St Peter’s Manchester (2014), PLAYHEAD: A Parallel Anthology for Schizophonia at CAC La Synagogue de Delme (2013), ATL 2067 for Flux Night Atlanta (2013), Open House: Divided Estates at Casa Luis Barragán / de_sitio Mexico City (2012), The Brilliant and the Dark at VBKÖ Vienna (2012) and The Women's Library London (2010), Song Division at Camden Arts Centre (2011), Struggle in Jerash at Gasworks London / Makan Amman (2010), Parallel Anthology at the 17th Biennale of Sydney (2010), Free-to-air at ICA London (2008) and Cornerhouse Manchester (2007).
