LA Weekly: Miracle Week Arts Calendar

Shana Nys Dambrot, LA Weekly, January 26, 2022


Arts all along the Miracle Mile, a full roster of virtual conversations with some of the culture’s most impressive women, book signings, performance art, dance on film, digital art on center stage, art inspired by music, video inspired by indigo blue, and artists excavate the generational memory of objects and the poetry of the elements.

Tori Wrånes: Mussel Tears at Shulamit Nazarian. Sculptures, paintings, sound, and performance merge together to evoke dream-like narratives, where the familiar becomes fantastical. As a synesthete, a person with a condition of combining senses such as seeing color and form in sound and language, Wrånes visualizes sound into a sculptural and physical dimension. This experience allows the artist to use sound to dictate the form of painting and sculpture and, in turn, she also visualizes objects through vocal projection.
