Tactical Urbanism in the Horizontal Landscape, Reggie Nicholson's Concepts 03/23 by Phantom Gallery Chicago Network | Visual Arts:
Reggie Nicholson-Drummer, Percussionist, Composer
The instantly recognizable style and sound of Reggie Nicholson have elevated him to one of the most distinctive, inventive, and inspirational drummer/percussionists of his generation; a formidable technician, but one who uses his considerable skills constructively and with infinite taste.
Tactical Urbanism, in the Horizontal Landscape, 'Soundscape Tapestry.' This collaborative project will utilize sound and visual art in a public installation. Soundscape Tapestry will echo the African American music experience unique to the sounds of Chicago.
Two thousand twenty-two project plans are to host and collaborate with composer Reggie Nicholson and develop platforms for exploration and creating new works. They are using tactical urbanism and contributing to the horizontal landscape to expose pedestrians and tourists to the experience of what is viewed inside the gallery. Will create a dynamic platform for large-scale installations and moving image works and sound performances, which did not have a dedicated space at the Bronzeville Art District Trolley Tours in prior years. Music and performances from collaborating artists accompany all the projections.
