Soundings–an exhibition of sculpture, photography, prints and video by Season 1 artist Ann Hamilton–is on view at Robischon Gallery in Denver, Colorado through November 15. The exhibition expands upon Hamilton’s works from an earlier exhibition at the Gallery, Dialog: Denver, as well as her participatory choral piece that was hosted in Denver during the Democratic National Convention.

Songs of Ascension, Hamilton’s collaborative piece with Meredith Monk, is presented at the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT) in Los Angeles, California through November 2. This multimedia performance, features Hamilton’s video imagery with Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble, plus a string quartet led by violinist Todd Reynolds, and a 20-person choir composed of members of the voice program at the Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts.
