Malik Gaines

Event Description

The UVic Orion Series in Fine Arts presents interdisciplinary artist and scholar, Malik Gaines.

Malik Gaines is a multifaceted artist and scholar known for his dynamic contributions to the fields of music, performance art, visual culture, and critical theory. With a background deeply rooted in exploring themes of identity and social justice, Dr. Gaines brings a unique perspective to the intersection of art and activism, inspiring a new generation of creative thinkers. Dr. Gaines is Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Arts at University of California San Diego.

In this lecture-performance, Dr. Gaines will talk about how his research informs his music compositions and other artistic activities. The talk will focus on his work as solo musician and co-artistic director of The Industry opera company in Los Angeles, along with the recent premiere of his opera, Star Choir, which he composed with Alexandro Segade’s libretto. Star Choir is an opera about future humans who attempt to colonize a distant planet. Through fantasy and critique, it asks urgent questions facing humanity amid our era’s confluence of natural and political crises, evoking scenes of disaster migration, fugitivity, and colonization as they are entwined with our difficult histories and our best visions of a potential future.
