Geneva Skeen (USA)

12/12/2022 – TOUCH 40 Years Night
Live set


Geneva Skeen is an artist and composer who works with sound, voice, architecture, video, sculpture and software. Her recordings, performances, publications and installations focus on site-specific landscape studies as a means of highlighting the complex interdependencies between perception, attention and interruption. Through the connections made between finite physical landscapes and their infinitely switchable digital representations, these works explore the qualities of embodiment in the midst of climate catastrophe and late capitalism. Skeen has published musical works on Room40, LINE Imprint, Touch, Dragon’s Eye Recordings and Crystalline Morphologies, which have been reviewed in The Wire Magazine, Pitchfork, Bandcamp, Foxy Digitalis and others. She has presented works at LAXART, Broad Museum, Open Space SFMOMA, LAND AND SEA, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Center for New Music San Francisco, REDCAT and LACMA. She is the curator / founder of Sequencing, a series of online transmedia publications for Fulcrum Arts that explores the intersection of art, science and social change, and is a member of VOLUME, a curatorial collective focused on sound and time-based practices. He is currently an adjunct professor of art at Carnegie Mellon University.
