Join us for a presentation on the history of Soul music in Houston by Flash Gordon Parks.
Jason Woods, aka Flash Gordon Parks, is the documentarian for Peace Uv Mine Entertainment LLC. An accomplished photographer of over ten years, Woods began his study of the art form at Jack Yates Senior High School. He continued his study and progression as an artist at Sam Houston State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Photography. During that time Woods began cultivate all of his inherent artistic talents. A lifelong lover of music, he began to dig deeper into the history and inner workings of music through crates of records.
As a DJ, Parks strives to reach the souls of people with music. He believes his job is not only to entertain, but expose the masses to artists of which they are not aware. Listening to his sets can be a mixture of a lesson in music history, walk down memory lane, and listening party for new artists.
Revenue Sharing is based on the 1960s “Teach-In” and is held in conjunction with Theaster Gates’ mixed media installation See, Sit, Sup, Sing: Holding Court featured in the exhibition Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art. The 30-45 minute lunch presentations begin at 12:15PM.
