Julius Eastman Performance Reviewed

Source: The New York Times.

The performance on Sunday, at the Knockdown Center in Queens, was part of the essential festival Julius Eastman: That Which Is Fundamental. Organized by the artist Tiona Nekkia McClodden and by Dustin Hurt of Bowerbird, a Philadelphia arts organization, along with members of the curatorial team at the Kitchen in Chelsea, it is the latest marker in the ongoing restoration of a crucial artist.

It continues. Go, on Tuesday at the Kitchen, to an evening exploring Eastman’s dance collaborations. And on Saturday there, for the reincarnation of his unruly “Trumpet” and the intense “Holy Presence of Joan D’Arc,” for 10 cellos. See, until Feb. 10, an exhibition blending archival riches and contemporary reverberations.
