Olivia Webb (b.1988) is an artist, musician and vocalist based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand. Her social art practice engages performance, video, sound, voice and ways of listening to explore and usher forth silent traditions and experiences embodied in space and place. Drawing from her experience as a classical vocalist, Olivia creates works for groups and solo performers that often involve song. Her most recent artworks explore themes of cultural identity through participatory projects which foreground various practices of listening.
Olivia has performed and exhibited internationally as an artist and vocalist, and has studied Early music and 17th – 19th Century ensemble singing in New Zealand, France and England. She holds a BFA(hons) from Massey University and a Master’s degree in Performance and Media Arts from AUT. In 2014 she co-founded the acclaimed New Zealand experimental record label End of the Alphabet Records with Noel Meek, and is currently completing her practice-led PhD in Art at AUT.
