Alaska-born, LA-based artist Nikita Gale presents a new work drawn from the background in archeology and music. Gale’s practice focuses on the relationships between material culture, social and political structures, and sound. For this commission, Gale creates a site-specific performance environment in the VW Dome activated by collaborative performances exploring the subjects of exhaustion, audience, listening, and refusal.
Dates and further details to be announced.
