If you happen to be in or around Monte Carlo, take a break from losing your money in the casinos, gawking at the ridiculous cars and spending time on the beaches to check out an art exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco. There will be a host of exhibits tomorrow and Sunday, but one of note to us as a music website will be by Jeff Mills, who will display the second edition of Weapons exhibit.
The exhibit is described as “A collection of artifacts and art extracted from his conceptual and live performance projects spanning over the past decade.” It focuses on “psychological protection,” the “collateral creativity” and “transmissions” of how techno impact will how we view and perceive the world.
“Music has always been used as a weapon. In the mid-1980’s a form of dance music, known as Techno emerged as the need to stand up and speak out intensified,” says Mills describing the exhibit. “Technology became cheaper more accessible to the average person, giving them the ability to construct a new type of art form and industry from mixing ideas and visions, a genre that is based on like-mindedness and shared perceptions about the World and the degree in which it spins.”
The exhibit will be available to view April 28-29 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco. Get more info here.
