The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at the University of Pennsylvania will present an interdisciplinary, multi-artist project examining the role of performance in museum spaces. Working collaboratively, artist and designer Raul de Nieves, dancer and scholar Danielle Goldman, and choreographer taisha paggett will join forces with composer George Lewis, poet and scholar Fred Moten, and The Otolith Group to produce an experimental series of dance, music, poetry, multi-media installations, and interactive programs. Diverse in discipline and race, the artists will invite audiences into an ongoing dialogue about the politics of performance within the museum context, asking questions about how, why, and where performance can occur, and whose voices are represented within cultural spaces. To complement the project, ICA will publish broadsheets dedicated to each artist's contributions to the project, along with a larger publication documenting the open and collaborative curatorial process and performance series. Endless Shout will occur in tandem with ICA's presentation of The Freedom Principle: Experiments in Art and Music, 1965 to Now, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).
