Atiyyah Khan | Performance

Performance, DJ-Set

Cape Town-based DJ Atiyyah Khan will perform at Astrup Fearnley Museet with a new set to mark the closing of Before Tomorrow, connecting divergent and underrepresented music histories to tendencies and artistic practices in the exhibition. Khan’s multi-pronged practice spans arts journalism, research, and sound archiving, writing for major newspapers in South Africa, and self-publishing. Common themes in her work focus on topics such as spatial injustice, untold stories of apartheid, jazz history, and underground art movements. She co-founded the music collective Future Nostalgia in 2013, and as DJ El Corazon, her sets explore the connections of musical forms across borders to evoke curiosity and discover sonic possibilities. Since 2017, she has collaborated with choreographers and artists in the creation of new work. Her current work continues both in the field of journalism and the study of sound.

This event is part of Before Tomorrow Live – a program of performance, talks, sound, and screenings as an extension of the anniversary exhibition Before Tomorrow – Astrup Fearnley Museet 30 Years. 

Free and open for all.
