Dear Julius, - Benjamin Mengistu Navet
The solo exhibition is the result of Benjamin Mengistu Navet’s 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.
