This Week in A.I.R. / May 25-29

Singing By Numbers

Gallery 4

Tuesday, 7-9pm AND Thursday 6-9pm

Laura Steenberge and Catherine Lamb, leaders of the experimental women’s choir Singing by Numbers, will perform in the Luisa Lambri galleries. Laura and Cat are interested in the exploration of the physics of sound waves through voice. The notes they sing are not named ‘do-re-mi’ or ‘c-d-e’, but are instead named by numbers. The numbers relate to the harmonic series: a naturally occurring system of pitches that is based on the physics of vibrations.

Needlepoint Therapy

Billy Wilder Theater Green Room

Thursday, 2-3:30pm

Led by West Los Angeles based psycho-analyst and needlepointing enthusiast, Dr. Ellen Medway, a small group of people will convene privately for 90 minute sessions of therapy over an eight-week period. While the group pursues self-exploration, discovery and psychological enrichment, they will also be engaging with craft and art history as they needlepoint images based on paintings from the museum’s permanent collection. Dr. Medway chose a selection of works that she has deemed conducive, relevant and pertinent to the therapeutic process. Images of these paintings have been made into needlepoint patterns and each participant will work on this pattern from the collection throughout the sessions. These sessions are now full.
