DiP Residency Showing: Leyya Mona Tawil

The post-nation of Lime Rickey International

Join us for a studio visit with Gibney DiP Resident Artist Leyya Mona Tawil as she presents new material and concepts for Lime Rickey International’s Noise & Nation. The research is driven by a post-national proposition, and Tawil’s attention to SWANA experimentalism, feminism and mobility.

Also join Leyya Tawil for NOMADIC SIGNALS. Leyya Tawil is a 2020 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow and will present her first program on Friday, Mar. 6, featuring the NYC debuts of music and performance outlet Porest and Feminist noise reggaeton duo Las Sucias. NOMADIC SIGNALS is a vessel for sonic performance operating in what Tawil refers to as the “diasporic imaginary,” a description of how sounds change in the diaspora: how they tether to their environment, accumulate, synthesize, and adapt at each location.
