Jennie C. Jones and poet Fred Moten will discuss Jennie C. Jones: Dynamics in conjunction with experimental text, “The Red Sheaves” weaving visual and sonic arts followed by a musical performance.
Join artist Jennie C. Jones and poet Fred Moten for a special evening of dialogue, prose, and music. Following a short conversation with the artist, Moten will provide a reading of “The Red Sheaves,” an experimental poetic text written in response to Jones’s work, performed alongside new songs created in collaboration with musicians Brandon Lopez and Cecilia Lopez.
This program, presented in conjunction with Jennie C. Jones: Dynamics, features a newly revised version of “The Red Sheaves” and interweaves the visual and sonic arts. “The Red Sheaves” was first published in Constant Structure, an artist book produced in collaboration between Jones and Moten on the occasion of the exhibition Jennie C. Jones: Constant Structure at the Arts Club of Chicago in 2020.
