Odeya Nini: A Solo Voice

January 24 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Evolving over the last seven years, A Solo Voice, composed and performed by Odeya Nini, is an investigation of resonance, extended vocal techniques, performance, and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. The work is a series of malleable compositions and improvisations that include field recordings and theatrical elements, aiming to dissociate the voice from its traditional attributes and create a new logic of song that is not only heard but seen through movement and action.…

Venezuela

March 12 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Batsheva’s artistic director, Ohad Naharin, is widely considered to be one of the great dance pioneers of his generation. In Venezuela, choreographer Naharin and his dancers explore the dialogue and conflict between movement and content through two 40-minute sections performed back to back. Gradually we become aware that the second section is choreographed identically to the first, but everything about it has changed. How? And why? The endless possibilities of a choreographer’s craft are at play, and in turn, Venezuela compels the…

J. Fred Weintz and Rosemary Weintz Art Lecture Series: Malik Gaines

March 14 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Statues of Limitations In art as in government, representation and abstraction serve as two modes of the same linguistic operation, rather than two sides of a radical break. This sense of continuity offers up abstraction as a premise for rethinking the notion of U.S. representative democracy, directing attention to its separating, reducing, isolating, and extracting projects. This talk-in-progress takes up this continuity in considering contentious monuments in public spaces, future ruins that provocatively suspend the regulation of subject and object.…

J. Fred Weintz and Rosemary Weintz Art Lecture Series: Michael Ann Holly

May 2 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Back of the Painted Beyond Michael Ann Holly will explore connections between current art historical theory and mid-twentieth century phenomenological thinking, illustrated by way of a few examples of early modern Northern works of art, mostly gleaned from wandering through the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. How might we talk about the correspondences, even conversations, among paintings that elude art historical labeling and contextualizing? Paintings are materially limited but metaphysically limitless. How do backgrounds, for example, intimate all that lies beyond…
