Initiating the Dimensions Variable series for the fall exhibition is the award-winning singer/songwriter, researcher, and educator Lisa E. Harris with Import, a commissioned performance that will respond to Kiwanga's exhibition.

A Monroe Research Fellow at Tulane University's Center for the Gulf South, Lisa “Li” Harris is also the 2021 recipient of the Dorothea Tanning Award for Music/Sound, awarded by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts. Recognized by Huffington Post as one of “14 Artist Who Are Transforming the Future of Opera,” Li's work resists genre classification as she focuses on the energetic relationships between body, land, spirit and place. She is also the founder and creative director of Studio Enertia, an arts collective and production company in Houston, Texas.
