When contemporary art meets acid house

Here are my two passions: music from the 80′s and 90′s and contemporary art.

In 2010 before the 29th Sao Paulo Biennial, I met an artist: Jeremy Deller. One of his works consisted in mixing music from the late 80′s/early 90′s with a big time British tradition, a Brass Band. The result was an amazing performance by the Williams Faire Brass Band playing The KLF tune “What Time is Love”. Deller won the Turner Prize in 2004 and next year will represent the British pavilion at the Venice Biennial. Deller had a retrospective this year at the Hayward Gallery in London.
