Led by DCA’s Exhibitions team, _In the Evening There is Feeling_ is (usually) DCA’s reading group. It takes its name from Gertrude Stein’s 1914 book _Tender Buttons_ and (usually) focuses, in an informal and welcoming way, on feminist and queer texts from the worlds of art and literature.
For our Winter season as part of Matthew Arthur Williams [https://www.dca.org.uk/whats-on/event/matthew-arthur-williams-soon-come]’ exhibition in the galleries, instead of just thinking about writers and poets, we will be also considering musicians who have been influential to the artist. We will be listening instead of reading.
This session will focus on the work of American singer and songwriter Tracy Chapman. Over the course of this event, we will spend some time listening closely together to excerpts of Chapman’s work, especially her Grammy-winning debut album from 1989, which includes the singles _Fast Car_, _Talkin' 'bout a Revolution_ and _Baby Can I Hold You_.
You can listen to Chapman’s eponymous album here [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Df1GsPYEds] and stream more of her work on many online platforms.
