As part of its ongoing interdisciplinary project Endless Shout, the Institute of Contemporary Art presents Mouth of Darkness, a performance by musician Travis, organized by Endless Shout collaborator The Otolith Group. The lead singer of the Chicago-based gospel noise band ONO, Travis is a musician and visual artist whose work investigates African American history, inspired by Travis’ experiences as a Vietnam War veteran.

This event is free and open to the public, advanced registration is encouraged.

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.
