Join Devin Kenny for a performance essay (involving live music, video, video synthesis, and analog visual aids) bouncing off of the legendary oeuvre of DJ Screw in relationship to cumbias rebajadas for the exhibition Slowed and Throwed. Kenny will touch on the social and philosophical resonances that accompany these genres, with attention towards their ripple effects which reach the present and continue on into the future.
