ACCA brings the spirit of the gesamtkunstwerk into the New Year with the exhibition Crescendo, featuring seven projects where artists have used film and music to create enclosed worlds, each exploring myth, history and human pageantry as metaphors for life. Viewers are treated to new visions of history, as artists explore histrionics, heroic deeds and herculean tasks, each a visual reflection of the inevitability of life and death.
Featuring: Dorothy Cross, Rodney Graham, Markus Kahre, Hans Op de Beeck, Julian Rosefeldt, Ana Torfs, Guido van der Werve
