Nasher Sculpture Center 360 Speaker Series: Nathan Carter
Artist Nathan Carter will speak about his Nasher exhibition, "The Dramastics: A Punk Rock Victory Twister in Texas," a fantastical cornucopia of color, form and gesture: an alternate realm that combines the story of Nathan Carter’s fictional punk rock band, which originates at Booker T. Washington High School, with his own studio productions and activities. With the introduction of figuration in to his work, the artist presents his first film titled, The Dramastics Are Loud AF, first debuted at the MCA Denver in fall 2016.
The film chronicles the adventures of The Dramastics, a punk band made out of paper and wire cutout figures set in dioramas. For his exhibition in the Nasher’s Corner Gallery, Carter will present his film with the dioramic environs created for the film in an amalgam of textiles, collages, works on paper, and a full-size sound stage, on view from October 27-December 31, 2017.
