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. .

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."
