Closing of the exhibition Répétition
21 august 2016
The Boghossian Foundation celebrates the closing of the exhibition Répétition with a Summer Party, the perfect final occasion to see the exhibition during an afternoon mixing culture, music, sun, and refreshments around the pool.
Andros Zins-Browne will present a special event featuring his performance Already Unmade. Created uniquely for the exhibition, the four solos which have run separately throughout the summer, will be performed together, converging for the first time in the Grand Hall of the Villa Empain.
Behind his turntables, DARKO will offer a mix of contemporary electronic music echoing the mission of the Boghossian Foundation, a centre for art and dialogue between Eastern and Western cultures. Darko’s DJ set will take you from Tehran to Brussels, via Beirut, Tel-Aviv and Berlin.
Hoping to welcome you on that summer day.
