Tarek Atoui: The Whisperers | Fusebox Festival

Free and open to everyone! Admission is walk-up only, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Co-presented by The Contemporary Austin and Fusebox Festival, this performance is a convergence of practices by Leyya Mona Tawil, Henna Chou, Chris Cogburn, and Parham Daghighi in response to the exhibition Tarek Atoui: The Whisperers, on view at The Contemporary Austin April 9 – August 14, 2022.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Chou, Cogburn, and Daghighi are musicians-in-residence at The Contemporary, where they have been experimenting with materials used in Atoui’s practice and have lead workshops with community collaborators. Tawil performed as a previous artist-in-residence with Atoui at the Sharjah Art Foundation (Sharjah, United Arab Emirates). Combining their individual modes of exploring sound and movement, the four artists will activate the installation through an improvised performance.
