Nick Cave: Call and Response

NC for callandresponse.jpg

DIG 19 will run during Tramway’s major new installation UNTIL, the first European exhibition by Chicago-based artist Nick Cave. The radically optimistic yet subversive space explores the resonance of race relations and politics around the world; metaphorically entering the belly of the Soundsuits he is known for. 

Cave also offers the space as an ‘alternative town hall’ for performance, discussion and events with a Call & Response project; with 8 artists invited to a workshop with Cave, and invited to create a response to UNTIL which may be presented at any point through the run of the exhibition. 

The artists and collectives involved are:
Christian Noelle Charles
Thulani Rachia
Seqouia Barnes
Aya Kobayashi
Najma Abukar
Adebusola Ramsay
with further artists to be announced

We’ll update this webpage and our social media channels to let you know about the responses presented during DIG. 

Until was organised by MASS MoCA, Massachusetts and co-produced with Carriageworks, Sydney and Crystal Bridges/The Momentary, Arkansas. Principle exhibition support was provided by an anonymous gift. Major exhibition support was provided by Jack Shainman Gallery and Beadcraft. Curated by Denise Markonish MASS MoCA and for Tramway by Claire Jackson.
