Sahra Motalebi offers a series of in-person community workshops at the Aspen Art Museum from her ongoing project VOICE/S that began in 2018. These collaborative sessions expand the definition of the voice, inspiring a network of open-ended questions. Moving between our individual and collective vocalities, we find unexpected poetics, multiple modes of expression, and listening as an aspect of the voice itself.
