Announcement! The wonderful... ADAM CHRISTENSEN
‘I’M NOT DONE WITH YOU YET’
From 27 April until 27 May 2019, artist Adam Christensen will create a new work that draws on the legacy of disco culture in 70s New York, specifically its forms of sociality, free and independent distribution of music, and our nostalgic and melancholic reconstruction of it in the present. He will transform CCA’s distinctive Tank exhibition space through a combination of modular sculptures and fabric pieces that will frame his performances. Christensen's practice stages a ‘blurring of reality and fiction through moments of extreme performativity’. Through intimate lyrical performances of songs, and spoken recitations of anecdotes, he transports audiences into a private world of heartbreak and loss, at once tragi-comic, moving and elevating.
