Acclaimed Brooklyn-based distinguished international artist and filmmaker Mickalene Thomas, a 2015 United States Artists Francie Bishop Good & David Horvitz fellow, turns her gaze from her arresting, often glittering and provocative mixed-media work to present /ˈentrəpē/ , a collaboration of music and art with three-time Grammy Award-winning jazz musician, Terri Lyne Carrington. The collaborative tête-à-tête will consist of a video by Thomas accompanied by Carrington’s live performance of new and adapted original works. Thomas’s artistry is the inspiration for Carrington’s live performance. Following the debut of the piece, there will be a conversation about their collaboration and individual processes. The evening will end with a Q&A.
Terri Lyne Carrington is a powerhouse drummer, composer, and educator, currently serving as Zildjian Chair in Performance at Berklee College of Music. Her career includes performing with luminaries such as Stan Getz and Herbie Hancock as well as collaborating with Natalie Cole, Cassandra Wilson, Esperanza Spalding, and others on her female-driven Mosaic Project recordings.
This collaboration between Thomas and Carrington will bring forth elements of their creative selves, thus forcing their viewers to express and ignite emotion. It will be palpable, queer, futuristic, dynamic, moving, indescribable and unpredictable. Their individual art forms will at times interact on a symbiotic yet syncopated level.Buy tickets/get more info now
