x avant xiii: the halluci nation, curated by bear witness
October 11-14, 2018
The Music Gallery are thrilled to welcome a special guest curator for this year’s X Avant Festival: Bear Witness of A Tribe Called Red. The festival theme draws on their internationally renowned album We Are The Halluci Nation.
“The Halluci Nation is the name of A Tribe Called Reds most recent album” says Bear “I am looking at this festival as an opportunity to extend the arms of (A Tribe Called Red’s) Halluci Nation to include some of the artists that I feel are already doing work in line with the its values. It is a future history given to inform the past. It is a rallying cry to all nations. We need to learn from things almost forgotten. We need to learn what it is to be human again and how to treat others as human.”
