i know we basically run a @metahaven fan account, but here's a picture from their current exhibition EARTH @stedelijkmuseum that i thought was v. beautiful - showing their piece Hometown (2018). Tonight, Metahaven are presenting A Plot Formerly Known as Dream @icalondon with @nkisiii @hesaitix @bonaventure_mbote @kuedo_ @kaisersafa. . "Programmed in conjunction with Metahaven: VERSION HISTORY, Metahaven and the ICA present a night of live performance and DJ sets by electronic musicians and producers who have collaborated with Metahaven, and two whom Metahaven greatly admire. These artists’ layered compositions fuse complex influences and forms of sonic collage to conjure moods, identities and rhythms that are at once cinematic, expressive and interrogative of lived realities."
