Maus Hábitos Variations







Share event:

Alongside her solo exhibition in the main gallery, Nichols will stage two performances – a sonic performance in the Maus Hábitos Concert Hall and an audio-visual performance inside of the exhibition. For the two performances,

Nichols will collaborate with musician Angelo Moustapha to explore the possibilities of improvisation between the disciplines of sculpture and music.

27th September | 9:30 PM

Concert Hall

Nichols will share the results of her collaborative process with Moustapha, following experiments in ‘close listening’ to the textures and internal resonances of Nichols’ found objects, and explorations into how these objects can become instruments.
