The New Museum hosts the first museum presentation of work by Jeanine Oleson, who will produce an exhibition, several public programs and workshops, a publication, and an experimental opera over the course of a four-month residency during the Museum’s 2014 spring R&D Season: VOICE.

11:00 a.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. from April 23 until July 6

During a five-month-long residency, Jeanine Oleson will develop a group of interrelated new works, constituting an exhibition titled “Hear, Here” public programs, workshops, a publication, and an experimental opera. The set and objects for the experimental opera (to be staged in the New Museum’s Theater this June) will be present during the run of the exhibition, forming an impromptu stage set or catalyst for a series of informal programs, mediated by invited guests in the gallery space, leading up to the final performance. An exploration of different kinds of voices—from the musical voice of opera to political acts of speech—Oleson’s project both investigates language and points beyond it. Looking for alternative models, “Hear, Here” asks questions such as: How can we attune ourselves to each other? Where is the agency in language? What does it really mean to listen?
