The DMA will be the first venue to screen all three parts of the video installation the world won't listen by British artist Phil Collins (no, not that Phil Collins). You might have seen one part of the film two years ago in Austin, when it showed at Cinematexas and at Lora Reynolds Gallery.
Each part was filmed in a different country (Colombia, Turkey and
Indonesia), where Collins posted open calls for fans of the band The Smiths to perform karaoke versions of their favorite song from album The World Won't Listen.
The result is at once goofy and touching, and a graceful reminder that
it's a little world we live in
