From February through May 2017, in thirty-one free workshops, more than nine hundred community members participated in the making of this exhibition, a companion to Nick Cave: Feat. (on view in the Upper-Level Galleries from November 10, 2017, through June 24, 2018).

Representing a wide range of media and artistic backgrounds, teaching artists Maria Borghoff, Dee Kimbrell, Amber Lelli, Beth Reitmeyer, and Massood Taj designed site-specific installations to be accessed through the five senses, bringing unique approaches to their collaborations with Frist Center visitors.

Extrasensory’s community art-makers reflected a diverse array of abilities, experiences, and learning styles as they responded to the teaching artists’ prompts and the materials supplied for these projects. We hope that interacting with their work will inspire you to see, smell, hear, touch, and taste your world in new ways.
