Co-published by the Bemis Center and X Artists’ Books and designed by Omnivore, this catalogue traverses the career of experimental musician and composer Maya Dunietz, unveiling her multidisciplinary practice that has spanned performance, composition, sculpture and installation, avant-garde theatrical performance, and choir work. Edited by Rachel Adams, Chief Curator and Director of Programs at the Bemis Center, other contributors include Chris Cook, Maya Dunietz, Michael Pisaro, Galit Eilat, Ariel Ashbel, Chen Tamir, Sergio Edelsztein, Ran Kasmy Ilan, and Keren Rosenbaum.

Maya Dunietz is a musician and artist based in Israel. Dunietz creates sculptures, installations and performances, combining classical singing, instrumentation, and recording techniques with digital technologies and a varied array of materials. She merges disciplines into a single malleable mass. Her works are influenced by their spatial context; furthermore, they invite audiences to listen carefully to the echoes and vibrations created by their interaction with the installed objects. Her works have been exhibited in museums and galleries such as Centre Pompidou, Paris (2018); FracPaca Museum, Marseille (2018); CCA, Tel Aviv (2016); Palais De Tokyo, Paris (2014); Arnolfini Center For Contemporary Art, Bristol (2013), among others.
