. . . Joan Jonas is on our mind: Charlemagne Palestine screens some films and performs on the piano.
Joan Jonas once referred to herself as an electronic sorceress. Her performances are private rituals for alter-egos and animal spirits.

Charlemagne Palestine once referred to himself as the Ali Baba of the 21st Century. In the 1970s, he made a series of videos that turn his own internal state of mind into music and sound by chanting hypnotically, running hysterically, worshipping teddy bears, and drinking cognac.

Charlemagne Palestine (b. 1947, Brooklyn, NY) is a composer, performer, and installation artist. He lives in Brussels.

This is a two-part event co-produced with our friends at The Lab. On Friday, March 20, Palestine performs live at The Lab.

This event is organized by Anthony Huberman and Dena Beard and is the seventh of a year-long series of events about and around the work of Joan Jonas.

March 19: The screening is followed by a conversation with the artist.
