Spencer Clark premieres new album Avatar Blue

His new Star Searchers release beats Hollywood to it in a speculative take on the long-awaited Avatar 2 film

Spencer Clark will take over Antwerp’s Het Bos Gallery in March to premiere his new Star Searchers album Avatar Blue. Acting as a speculative sequel to James Cameron's 2009 Avatar film (Avatar 2 has a US release date of 18 December 2020), the artist hopes to inject some positivity into the world of Hollywood via his statement and gesture to the personal power of what he calls the “Imagineers”.

The event will take the form of an installation highlighting some of Hollywood's most infamous special effects pursuits, as seen in films such as TC 2000, Hologram Man, Robocop 2, The Abyss and more. The final evening will feature interpretations of Avatar Blue's world by James Ferraro, Francesco Cavaliere and Lieven Martens Moana, along with a performance from Clark himself.

Avatar Blue will run from 20–23 March at Het Bos in Antwerp.
