Feeling Tones: Artist Talk with Leigh Davis

December 10, 2023 , 4:00pm 5:30pm

workbench plants and shelves

Multimedia artist Leigh Davis has thought a lot about death and dying. Now, she’s thinking about what comes next: the afterlife. In her new video series Feeling Tones, Davis explores how we construct our beliefs about human consciousness and a possible afterlife. She focuses on how abstraction, imagery, and non-linear narratives help us process discomfort and imagine decisions based on our own lives and deaths. Joined in conversation with Dr. Harry Weil, Green-Wood’s vice president of education and public programs, Davis will share about the work’s intention to create and transfer visceral, instinctual, humorous, and sensory knowledge around death.

Price: Free. Registration required.

Feeling Tones will be on view in the Modern Chapel from 11am-4pm on Sunday, December 10th, for you to experience before the artist talk.

Leigh Davis is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. Her work explores grief, memory, and storytelling—how these universal experiences help define what it means to be human. Trained as a photographer, her work now ranges across media, from sculpture and installation to sound, performance, and video. Davis has shown work at Open Source Gallery (Brooklyn), BRIC (Brooklyn), EFA Project Space (New York), Oliver Art Center at CCA (Oakland), and MICA (Baltimore). In fall 2020, Davis presented Vigil, a site-specific sound installation in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel.

Free. Registration required. Please consider a $10 donation to the Green-Wood Historic Fund so that we can continue to offer free and low-cost programs throughout the year.
