world premiere

Friday, September 29 at 9 pm in the courtyard of Palazzo Strozzi, the music of The Holy Presence of Joan d'Arc written in 1981 by the minimalist African-American composer Julius Eastman (1940-1990), will be welcomed by the living installation created by Vanessa Beecroft, through a group of over 30 models, between white and black, modulated by the geometry of the cloister.
