Le Guess Who? reveals new program: ‘Untitled’
New satellite event featuring exhibitions, film screenings, talks, and more
November 8-11 marks the 12th edition of Le Guess Who?, Holland’s most adventurous music festival. Genre-spanning performances from over 150 artists will take place in historic locations throughout the city center of Utrecht, with venues ranging from theaters and music clubs to churches, galleries and warehouses.
Le Guess Who? now presents a new satellite event for the upcoming festival edition: ‘Untitled’. The program focuses on all disciplines other than music and is an exploration of other artistic expressions by festival artists, as well as a collection of exhibitions, film screenings and talks that can be visited in Utrecht during the festival weekend.
Untitled is the most recent addition to Le Guess Who?’s satellite events, following Le Mini Who?, Le Bazarre, Le Feast, and Lombok Festival. The program includes a city tour led by festival artist Lonnie Holley, a film program in cooperation with Chasing Reels and RVNG Intl., an extensive collaboration with Centraal Museum, and exhibitions and talks at Utrecht institutions BAK, Foundation De Pastoe Fabriek, Casco Art Institute, and Kapitaal.
Le Guess Who? & Centraal Museum present
Centraal Museum and Le Guess Who? present a three-part collaboration during the upcoming festival edition: Colombian producer Lucrecia Dalt composes a special soundtrack for the exhibition ‘De Line Up’, which can be heard exclusively during the festival via an audio tour. Furthermore, the installation ‘Black Chords’ by the French artist Saâdane Afif, in which thirteen guitars mechanically produce a chord progression, will be presented in the Nicolaïkerk. Additionally, two animated films by visual artist Robbie Cornelissen will be screened in TivoliVredenburg.
Through The Eyes of Lonnie Holley
Besides being an improvising musician, ‘Lover of Mother Universe’ Lonnie Holley is also an acclaimed visual artist, creating works of great detail with objects found on the street. During Le Guess Who?, he leads an Utrecht city tour, in which Holley displays the many unique ways of how he experiences his direct living environment.
Artist Talks: Beverly Glenn-Copeland and Future Feminism
In collaboration with Casco Art Institute, Le Guess Who? presents a conversation between transgender artist Beverly Glenn-Copeland and feminist activist Hodan Warsame, about a young generation of changemakers, compassionate action and encouraging a ‘one world family’ perspective. Festival artists Kembra Pfhaler and Johanna Constantine of the Future Feminism collective will discuss their thoughts on the subjugation of women and the earth and the redefinition of societal roles of women and men in Kytopia.
