The Artist's Voice: Bethany Collins in Conversation with Nico Muhly
The Studio Museum in Harlem
New York, NY
Share this event:

In this conversation, artist in residence Bethany Collins and contemporary classical music composer, Nico Muhly will discuss the (im)possibilities of language within their practices as well as Collins's work on view in Material Histories. The conversation will explore Collins's and Muhly's views on linguistics and semiotics and interrogate the use of language as a primary form of expression that influences their distinct, yet related practices. The conversation will include a multimedia presentation and will conclude with a question and answer segment.

Bethany Collins was born in Montgomery, Alabama in 1984. She holds an MFA from Georgia State University (2012) and a BA in Studio Art and Visual Journalism from the University of Alabama (2007). Collins is a painter who focuses on dual perception and multiplicity in the seemingly binary. Her works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at notable venues throughout the United States, including the Zuckerman Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia and the Hammonds House Museum. Collins was also a finalist for the Artadia Atlanta Award.
Nico Muhly (b. 1981) is one of today's foremost composers with a wide scope of work written for soloists, ensembles, and organizations including pianist Emanuel Ax & mezzo-soprano Sophie von Otter, countertenor Iestyn Davies, violinist Pekka Kuusisto, New York City Ballet, New York Philharmonic, Cincinnati Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, American Ballet Theater, Paris Opéra Ballet, Barbican Centre and Wigmore Hall. Muhly's first full-scale opera, Two Boys, had its US premiere at the Metropolitan Opera in 2013.
