The Institute of Contemporary Art presents a closing party for its multidisciplinary project Endless Shout featuring a performance by the musical group Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society, which uses traditional and electric instrumentation to build long-form, composed and improvised psychedelic environments.

Endless Shout is a multi-artist project examining the role of performance in museum spaces. Over the course of six months, six artists—designer Raúl de Nieves, dancer Danielle Goldman, choreographer taisha paggett, composer George Lewis, poet Fred Moten, and artist collective The Otolith Group—collaborate on an experimental series of dance, music, poetry, multi-media installations, and interactive programs. The project addresses questions about how, why, and where performance can occur, and whose voices are represented within cultural spaces.
