About this event

Odeya Nini: Voice Talk

Los Angeles-based experimental vocalist and contemporary composer Odeya Nini presents a workshop in conjunction with UCI Institute and Museum of California Art's exhibition, The Resonant Surface: Movement, Image, and Sound in California Painting.

The voice is nuanced, invisible, physical, practical, potent and so much more. According to Odeya Nini, the human experience is intertwined and inseparable from the lived relationship with the voice on external and cellular levels. Nini's Voice Talk is a program where participants are encouraged to ask questions and deeply engage with concepts of voice through an interactive conversation with the artist, opening a space for questioning and deeper understanding.

About the Artist

Odeya holds a BFA from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and an MFA in composition from California Institute of the Arts. She has collaborated extensively with dancers, visual artists, filmmakers, and theater directors as both a composer and soloist and has worked with and appeared in works by artists and ensembles such as Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, Lucy & Jorge Orta, wild Up, and The Industry. Her work has been presented at venues and festivals across the US and internationally, such as The Hammer Museum, REDCAT, Joyce Soho, MONA and Art Basel Miami, from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, Australia, Mongolia, Madagascar and Vietnam. Odeya has lectured on contemporary vocal techniques and composition at the university level and leads workshops exploring the creative and healing qualities of voice and movement.

About the Exhibition

The Resonant Surface, on view beginning September 11 at UCI Institute and Museum of California Art, encourages viewers to slow their gaze and experience paintings in an embodied and immersive way. Musical landscapes, rhythmic abstractions, sound and color experiments, and other multisensory subject matter play with the immediacy of visual perception. The exhibition considers these kinds of explorations in image, movement, and sound in early to mid-20th century California painting. It traces the ways artists have long used painting to investigate the complex nature of perception beyond vision, building connections across time, space, images, objects, and sensations.
