Exhibition Preview of Terence Nance: Swarm
Creative Capital Members are invited to attend the first solo museum presentation by 2021 Creative Capital Grantee Terrence Nance. Swarm is made up of five immersive environments that explore Nance’s genre-defying and innovative practice in film, video, television, sound, and performance.
