Exhibition Opening: “Freedom Through Collective Improvisation: iEAR Presents! Free Jazz from the Sanctuary”
April 1, 2010 – April 30, 2010 EDT
Freedom Through Collective Improvisation: iEAR Presents! Free Jazz from the Sanctuary is a new gallery show at The Arts Center of the Capital Region, 265 River Street in downtown Troy, New York. The exhibition celebrates a 13-part series of jazz performance videos and photographs featuring some of the world’s most talented improvisers performing a wide spectrum of music in the genre broadly known as free jazz. These uncompromising and inventive musicians create new languages and expressive forms, with an aesthetic and conceptual edge that challenges listeners to look at the world anew. It features locally-produced videos and still photos of internationally-known musicians, and runs from April 1 through April 30, 2010.
There will be an opening reception with light refreshments at 6 PM on April 1st including a performance by Mathew Shipp Trio, and a closing reception during Troy Night Out on April 30th.
The exhibition is supported by the Department of the Arts and the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at RPI. This exhibition is funded in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts Electronic Media and Film Program.
