The Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania presents Endless Shout, an interdisciplinary, multi-artist project examining the role of performance in museum spaces. Over the course of six months, six artists—designer Raul de Nieves, dancer Danielle Goldman, choreographer taisha paggett, composer George Lewis, poet Fred Moten, and artist collective The Otolith Group—will collaborate on an experimental series of dance, music, poetry, multi-media installations, and interactive programs. The project will address questions about how, why, and where performance can occur, and whose voices are represented within cultural spaces.
Endless Shout will occur in tandem with ICA’s presentation of The Freedom Principle: Experiments in Art and Music, 1965 to Now.
