Dear Julius,

The solo exhi­bi­ti­on is the result of Benjamin Mengistu Navets three months resi­d­en­cy at Off the Grid.


This research is about trans­la­ti­on : How do we under­stand the reper­toi­re of Julius Eastman?

This research is about echo : how are artists nowa­days rein­ter­pre­ting his work?

This research is about wea­ving Julius’ music :

How do we pre­ser­ve and con­ti­nue a heri­ta­ge of mecha­ni­cal wea­ving looms by com­bi­ning them with musi­cal moda­li­ties, such as punch card systems.
