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.

About

He will transform the Daskalopoulso Gallery, 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.

Performances by Christensen will take place on the opening evening, Sat 27 Apr at 7pm; Sat 4 May, 5pm; Thurs 16 May, 7pm; Sun 26 May, 4pm. These will include various collaborators.
