Do those who object to contemporary art prefer community parades? Howl is a celebration of 15 significant moments in art history. A ritual procession starring a sculpture of Captain Cook, thousands of sunflower seeds and a killer whale named Tilikum. A requiem that is unquestionably queer, arguably dangerous and probably obscene. Performed by three women. Scored by Mozart himself.
Created by Willoh S. Weiland, Lara Thoms and Lz Dunn, Howl commemorates controversy – from a furore over a feminist self-portrait and outrage at a rainbow repeatedly burnt in a public square to artists arrested on suspicion of bio-terrorism. Howl energetically probes the reactions art can invoke and tests the perspectives that history permits.
