Aphids | 27 - 28 July 2018


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 four women. Scored by Mozart himself.

Created by Willoh S. Weiland, Lara Thoms and Lz Dunn, Howl commemorates controversy – from the furore aroused over a feminist self-portrait and the outrage at a rainbow being burnt repeatedly in a public square, to the indignation of artists arrested on suspicion of bio-terrorism. Howl energetically probes the reactions art can invoke, and the perspective that history permits.
