Phil Collins explores music’s universal + transformative potential in my heart’s in my hand, and my hand is pierced… at MOCA, Oct 7 – Jan 28

, 6 October 2017
Phil Collins is presenting solo exhibition my heart’s in my hand, and my hand is pierced, and my hand’s in the bag, and the bag is shut, and my heart is caught at Cleveland’s MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), opening October 7 and running to January 28.
 
Curated by Andria Hickey with A. Will Brown, Collins will present an “intimate collaborative installation” featuring six listening booths that will play original recordings of Collins’ music he made in collaboration with various artists, including Planningtorock, David Sylvian, Scritti Politti, Lætitia Sadier, Maria Minerva and Damon & Naomi, and others, as well as guests of a homeless shelter in Cologne. 

Exploring “the universal transformative potential of music” as well as “the city’s deep struggle with poverty and the prevalence of homelessness,” the work will address important issues related to division and bridging gaps that are moving further apart.
