As part of the exhibition "Art Cave Refrain", Bek is giving a talk with her Uncle, Peter Mechen, about roads into music, creativity, and having a conversation aound 'raw canon' to ' classical canon'.

 

"Art Cave Refrain" was described by Bek as ”holy shit, I got my stuff out of storage after five years, and argh, the grim reckoning of stuff, and what do I do with at least 3 banana boxes of tapes from the year 1997...?, and why have I kept them..?, and holy shit, some of this stuff I’m excavating from 2000 seems kinda prophetic..? Maybe this is lyrics..?”

This talk is a part of the ongoing excavation.

 

Exhibition dates: 26th October - 14th November
