Artist Talk: Jason Moran

Wednesday, February 24 | 6:30PM

In collaboration with the University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and Da Camera, CAMH is pleased to welcome jazz pianist, composer, and bandleader Jason Moran in conjunction with Jennie C. Jones: Compilation. Moran will examine Jones’s use of experimental jazz to inform her aesthetic and conceptual approaches to art making. For Jones, the act of listening, as well as the modes thereof, become in and of themselves part of her practice, which has evolved from literal references to music in early drawings and collages to more nuanced and multifaceted installations that engage the viewer visually and aurally.
