Auditory After Hours: Jason Moran

Saturday, February 6, 13 & 20
7pm, 7:30pm & 8pm

“The combination of music and art made me feel like I was in a dream. Really transported us to another place.— Jennifer, Auditory After Hours visitor

The limitlessly innovative pianist, composer, and bandleader Jason Moran has always taken jazz to new places—whether collaborating with world-class visual artists, mounting a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, or as Artistic Advisor for Jazz at the Kennedy Center. Now he brings it to the MASS MoCA galleries with a selection of music specially designed for Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective. LeWitt’s patterns have inspired Moran since early in his career; in Moran’s own words, this Auditory After Hours set is geared toward “breaking the grid”—whether you enjoy it in LeWitt or any of our expansive galleries. Our minds are blown in advance. 

ON SALE: Friday, January 22, 12pm

In Session

Thursday, January 21, 6pm EST

Why should art institutions move toward the work of anti-racism and social change? What are an art institution’s responsibilities toward BIPOC audiences when hosting challenging work concerning violence enacted against Black and Brown bodies? What is an art institution’s role in providing context around a work of art? Tune in tomorrow to hear museum leaders discuss these questions and more at our second In Session panel discussion focused on anti-racist work in museums. 

Free for all, the discussion will be streamed live on MASS MoCA’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
