Register for the event here. The artist Camille Norment will be in conversation with musician, author, and curator David Toop about Camille Norment: Plexus, the current exhibition at Dia Chelsea. Toop has long engaged with Norment’s practice. He contributed to the Camille Norment: Rapture (2015), and is a contributor to Plexus’s accompanying publication, forthcoming from Dia. Camille Norment was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1970. She received a BA in comparative literature and art history from the University of Michigan in 1992, and an MFA and an MA in Interactive Telecommunications from New York University in 1994 and 1998. She attended the Whitney Independent Study Program from 1994–95. Informed by the sonic, Norment’s practice spans drawing, installation, performance, sculpture, sound, and video. Her work has recently been the subject of solo exhibitions at Oslo Kunstforening, Norway; the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago; and Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin. Several public works by Norment are permanently installed in Norway and Italy. She has recently performed at institutions including the Munch Museum, Oslo (2021); the Renaissance Society, University of Chicago (with Hamid Drake, 2019); and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (with Craig Taborn, 2019). Her albums include Toll (2011) and the soundtrack and special edition LP for the film The Haunted (2017/20). Norment represented Norway in the 2015 Venice Biennale and has since participated in the biennials of Kochi-Muziris, India (2016); Montreal (2016); Lyon, France (2017); and Thailand (2018). She is prorector of research at the Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo (Oslo National Academy of the Arts). She lives in Oslo.  David Toop’s practice crosses boundaries between sound, listening, music, and materials, and encompasses performances of improvised music, writing, electronic sound, field recordings, curation, sound art installations, and opera. He is the author of eight acclaimed books, including The Rap Attack (1984), Ocean of Sound (1995), Sinister Resonance (2010), and Inflamed Invisible: Writings on Art and Sound, 1976–2018 (2019). Briefly a member of David Cunningham’s pop project the Flying Lizards, Toop has released fourteen solo albums, among them New and Rediscovered Musical Instruments (1975), Sound Body (2006), Entities Inertias Faint Beings (2016), and Apparition Paintings (2021). His 1978 Amazonas recordings of Yanomami shamanism and ritual were released on Sub Rosa as Lost Shadows (2016). In recent years, he has collaborated with Camille Norment, Sidsel Endresen, Alasdair Roberts, Lucie Štěpánková, Fred Frith, Thurston Moore, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and others. He has curated exhibitions of sound art, including Sonic Boom at the Hayward Gallery in London (2000), and his opera Star-shaped Biscuit was performed in 2012 at Snape Maltings, Suffolk, England.
