Sound Gestures is a solo exhibition by Sonia Louise Davis, a recipient of The New York Community Trust’s Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund residency at ISCP.

Davis will present a new site-specific installation in ISCP’s Project Space, drawing from her multi-year focus on improvisation, with considerations of music, movement, struggle, assembly and transcendence.

A solo performance by Davis featuring live vocals and movement will take place at 6:45pm on July 31.

Sound Gestures includes a limited edition poster with text by Davis and Greta Hartenstein, Senior Curatorial Assistant at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Sonia Louise Davis (born 1988, New York City) works across installation, performance and writing. She has performed at the Whitney Museum of American Art and published in Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory.
