The Target and Friedman galleries have been full this past week as artists, their teams, and Walker staff prepare for the group show that is 9 Artists. Fortunately for attendees, the artists won’t be leaving once the show debuts tonight. The opening is only the beginning of a weekend of engaging talks and performances—one relying on audience participation. Renzo Martens already gave a lecture on gentrification, but the rest of the group—Bjarne Melgaard, Liam Gillick, Hito Steyerl, Danh Vo, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, and Nástio Mosquito—will be presenting in some fashion on October 24, 25, and 26. Walker photographer Gene Pittman captured these glimpses into the installation process of this international, multigenerational show.
