In Summer 2024, Nottingham Contemporary is delighted to present the first solo exhibition in a European institution by multidisciplinary artist, musician and social researcher Julian Abraham ‘Togar’ (b.1987, Indonesia). This exhibition sees the return of another significant cross-departmental collaboration between Nottingham Contemporary's Exhibitions, Learning and Live Programmes teams, with the ambition to directly engage local communities of young people in the city, inviting them to participate in the artist's exploratory sonic world. Building on his ongoing OK Studio (2020 – present), a place for music and events and to imagine the role of public space, ‘Togar’ will create a participatory environment centred around a chorus of automated instruments, re-imagined synthesisers, keyboards, ocean drums and live percussive interventions with the aim of offering audiences the chance to ‘co-experiment, co-explore, co-imagine, co-produce’.
