About the Event

Join us for a conversation with artist Nina Katchadourian who will discuss her creative process and her current Rice University Public Art exhibition Please, Please, Pleased to Meet’cha.

The outdoor sound installation installed among the branches of five trees in the Live Oak Grove (between Herring Hall and Brochstein Pavilion) is a whimsical work featuring the voices of United Nations interpreters performing the calls of various birds, invoking curiosity and questioning the limits of language, translation, and species recognition.

This dynamic sound installation, presented by Rice Public Art in conjunction with the Moody Center for the Arts’ spring programming focus on ecology, underscores Rice’s commitment to interdisciplinary collaborations, unconventional opportunities for learning, and the importance of women in science and art. We hope you’ll stop by and listen for yourself!

Please, Please, Pleased to Meet’cha: 10am-5pm daily
