The Union for Contemporary Art

Text becomes the through-line of this performative response to Lincoln-based artist Matthew Sontheimer's exhibition, That's right...I still don't have a website. Sontheimer's text-centric work will be explored in tandem with music. Through unconventional treatments and musical arrangements, ONE Festival artists will explore the rich and often personal words of Sontheimer and generations of American artists.

Fontenelle Forest

Works of Pauline Oliveros and others.

The International Contemporary Ensemble's close creative relationship with Pauline Oliveros began in 2001, when the founding members of the group were undergraduates at Oberlin, and commissioned a new work titled Elemental Gallop. Since then, ICE has explored Oliveros' practice of listening deeply in site-specific, non-traditional performance contexts. In the Fontenelle Forest in Omaha, ICE will create a sonic dialogue with this unique environment by curating a sequence of Oliveros text scores that draw attention to the expressive potential of the sounds around us.

Free with admission to Fontenelle Forest
