Description

** In person art exhibit. Click "Attend Event" to purchase a ticket.** renowned artist and musician Jason Moran will present a gathering of artworks that celebrates space and creative expression in jazz history, as well as the importance of music and live performance as vital forces in Black culture and American life. Conceived during 2020, "Bathing the Room with Blues" debuts a series of new works on paper. These works were created by Moran placing a sheet of Japanese Gampi paper on a piano and then using saturated pigment to track the “attack” of his fingers upon the keys. The results are vibrant traces of a performance that build upon his recurring quest to explore the “residues” of music-making. The color blue, which dominates many of these works on paper, alludes to the rich migratory history of Blues music, the sentiment of melancholy found in “blue notes,” and the diaspora of traditions brought to the United States from the African continent.
