Eastman Invocations I
Talks & Performances by Dustin Hurt, Hassan Khan, Annika Khars, Petr Kotik, Mary Jane Leach, George E. Lewis, The Otolith Group, Christine Rusiniak and others
Musicians, collaborators and academics who have been engaged with Eastman’s work and are responsible for much of his legacy such as Dustin Hurt, Petr Kotik, Mary Jane Leach, George E. Lewis and Christine Rusiniak will be delivering lectures and performing new pieces.
The Otolith Group and Josh Kun will be looking into the political and social contexts that gave way to Julius Eastman’s Nigger series and the weight of his performances. In the evening join us for the world premiere of Tainted by Hassan Khan, a 40 minutes piece for voices and percussive accents.
