Conceiving of abstraction as a language with the potential to span the gulf between African-American and dominant modernisms, Jennie C. Jones makes her solo museum debut in a Directions exhibition that features an “acoustic intervention” in the gallery space. She discusses her work and the connections between avant-garde visual and musical practices with pianist Jason Moran, artistic advisor for jazz at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Directions: Jennie C. Jones: Higher Resonance is organized by associate curator Evelyn Hankins. Major funding for Directions is provided by Altria Group, with additional support from the Herb Alpert Foundation.
