To percuss means to strike or to hit, but it also means to move or to groove. It means to interrupt or to break. To worship and to heal. To gather and to accompany. To control but also to protest and demand freedom from forms of control. To beat at the speed of the heart. "Drum Listens to Heart" weaves different forms of percussion together — physical and socio-political, literal and metaphorical — and juxtaposes instances of impact and vibration with forms of control, emancipation, and community-building. It offers a framework and a vocabulary that binds art and politics to each other in percussive ways Featured artists include Luke Anguhadluq, Marcos Ávila Forero, Em’kal Eyongakpa, Milford Graves, Barry Le Va, Rose Lowder, Lee Lozano, Harold Mendez, Davina Semo, and Michael E. Smith. Open Wed–Sat 12pm–6pm
