North/South: The Arctic and Antarctic in Words and Music

University Park Campus USC Fisher Museum of Art (HAR)

823 W Exposition Blvd, Los Angeles, 90089

7:00pm

In December 2006, in the remote, icy expanse of Antarctica, artist Lita Albuquerque created a large-scale stellar map. Photographs of the strange and beautiful installation will be exhibited at the USC Fisher Museum in Spring 2015. Inspired by the exhibition, a program of music and spoken word will reflect on Antarctica, Albuquerques ambitious art and where humans fit in the vastness of space and time. Pianist and program curator Victoria Kirsch will be joined by fellow USC Thornton School alumnus Robin Buck, baritone, as well as soprano Suzan Hanson and actor/narrator Jamieson Price. The program will include excerpts from Dominick Argentos song cycle The Andre Expedition, about an ill-fated 1897 attempt to travel to the North Pole via hot-air balloon, and selections from the website Antarctica Experienced through Music.

Kali Uchis

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

7:30pm

Kali Uchis is a star in every sense of the word. The Colombian-born, Virginia-bred artist has only one body of work to her name: Drunken Babble. Nonetheless, the loose collection of songs she recorded in her bedroom began to dabble in the soulful 70s meets new age R&B sound that she has since perfected. Both musically and stylistically, Kali embodies a West coast artist. Her bubbly sound and stunning wardrobe can catch the eye of any Californian and instantly turn him or her to a fan. In fact, a few of those wandering glances have been from California

natives Snoop Dogg and Tyler the Creator, both of whom Uchis has collaborated with. Feeding off these co-signs, Kali played numerous shows up and down the coast and logged studio time with more notable names including Mad Decent figurehead, Diplo.Her confidence is evident, holding her own on the stage as well as in the studio alongside stars and legends alike.
