About the Exhibition:
The title of this show was inspired by the Talking Heads song of the same name. The music video for “Once In A Lifetime” features a collection of cultural dance moves influenced by songwriter and lead singer David Byrne’s experiences while touring with the band.
“David Byrne was always searching for inspiration at concerts and on the road,” Grant explained. “Because he never limited himself to one style of art he was constantly exposed to new ideas which allowed his music and videos to always be a visual and listening experience. This is exactly what this show is all about. It’s a blend of various artistic ideas combined to make a Once In A Lifetime artistic experience.”
