The LeRoy Neiman Gallery, Columbia University

The LeRoy Neiman Gallery, 310 Dodge Hall:  Complex Issues: Triangle of Resistance:

Miya Masaoka, Sound Arts, in conversation with Tom Kalin, Film

MFA Sound Arts Director Miya Masaoka discusses the album Triangle of Resistance, critically acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal for its “deeply expressive hybrid style,” including its musical and sound structures, timbres, and the creative process derived from the experience of incarceration of her family during WWII in the Japanese-American Internment camps.

This conversation with Tom Kalin, Film, explores political hysteria, otherness, and how the trauma of these experiences were translated into sound.

Complex Issues explores difference, visibility, and representation through recent work by faculty of Columbia University and Columbia University School of the Arts in particular. On a monthly basis, conversations invite challenging questions of racial, ethnic, gender, economic, sexual, religious, and cultural complexity, and how they are articulated across discipline and genre today.
