PARADOX 05.12.23

[music selectors]
{special guest}


From polyrhythmic techno, to dancehall, to techy minimal drum & bass, the past 10 years have found the Brazilian-American producer Andre Lira, aka Doctor Jeep, exploring dance music from a global lens. While attending college in Boston he quickly gained notoriety as one of the city’s most eclectic young selectors, blending everything from drum & bass, dubstep, and uk garage to techno, electro, and classic house. With DJ sets mixing the past, present, and future of dance music in some of North America and Europe’s best clubs, and festival appearances at Outlook, Bass Coast, Bonnaroo, and EDC, he has proven to adapt to any vibe and make it his own style of party. Production-wise, Jeep’s music has been described as “a sound somewhere between the forward-thinking bass mutations of Cosmic Bridge, the grinding 808 electro of Swamp81, and the breakbeat-heavy stylings of early 90′s UK rave music.” In the past 10 years he's released through a wide range of international labels such as Berlin’s SPE:C, NYC's Trouble & Bass (R.I.P.), Nottingham's Tumble Audio, his own imprint DRX, and many more. He’s been featured in worldwide media publications like Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, Mixmag, DJ Mag, and XLR8R for his genre-hopping mixes and ever-evolving production style, and with DJ support from a diverse set of tastemakers such as Four Tet, Ben UFO, Special Request, and Objekt, to Diplo, Claude VonStroke, Maya Jane Coles, and beyond, the future looks bright for this multifaceted producer.


art exhibition
curated by

  • Alexandra Beaumont.

Alexandra works in textile and movement to explore personal and collective preservation, restoration, and expansion. Handmade banners (dyed, stitched, torn, appliqued, inked, embroidered) reference the visual, kinetic, and metaphoric elements of parades. They often feature intimate stories and totems of personal history; the pieces themselves becoming acts of reclamation, documentation, myth creation. Her work prods the spaces between our individual and collective parades of self – assuming an audience, crafted for display – and our experience of living within that presentation: what do we say/display of ourselves to ourselves? How does it shape us as we shape it? Each piece she makes is worked entirely by hand - pushing into the intimacy and tenderness that cloth allows, in contrast and/or conversation with the boldness of parade.
