Live Performance: Lucy Raven and Deantoni Parks
USA, 2018, PERFORMANCE, 60 MIN
Artist Lucy Raven and musician Deantoni Parks come together in this live performance and film screening inspired by the artwork and music of Walter De Maria. Originally commissioned by the Dia Foundation for the Arts, Bullet Points for a Hard Western is an evolving response to the artist’s work, in particular his films—including Hard Core (1969), for which De Maria composed the score—and his early percussion work with the proto-Velvet Underground band The Primitives.

Lafawndah is the music project of performer, musician, and filmmaker Yasmine Dubois. Combining rich songwriting and rapturous vocal delivery with an ability to distill and transpose her heritage and identity, the Egyptian-Iranian performer incorporates moods and motifs that are at once intimate and deceptive, sensual and unsettling, into a global pop fantasy. Performing a range of material including songs from her latest EP Tan released on the canonical electronic label Warp, Lafawndah will bring the festival to a close with a riveting performance.
