Museums freeze time. Music melts it. In this artist talk, Jace Clayton (also known as DJ /rupture) will discuss his recent work, which actively flows between these binaries. The talk will move from his roots as a DJ to his recent solo exhibitions, The Great Salt (Harvard Art Museums, 2018-2019) and White Noise as a Call to Responsibility (Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden, 2019-2020).
