Cultural worker Victor Shiffman talks Nick Cave exhibition and growing up in Apartheid South Africa
Cultural workers are those 'behind-the-scenes' people who are creating all of the spaces where artists can communicate with us, the audience. The ones we've spoken to on The Bridge are invested in bringing new voices and new experiences to the public. Victor Shiffman is one of those cultural workers.
He tells us about the Nick Cave exhibition - Stranger than Kindness - on now in Montreal, at l'Astral gallery. But Victor also takes us back to Apartheid South Africa - where he grew up...organizing anti-apartheid concerts, escaping military conscription. It's a time that sets the tone for how and why he's spent three decades - so far - working for arts and culture!
