Founded on the virtually all-Black South Side of Chicago in 1965 and still active today, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians has played an unusually prominent role in the development of American experimental music, exploring an unprecedented range of methodologies, processes, and media. Scholar-composer George E. Lewis, professor of music at Columbia University and an AACM member since 1971, presents an historical overview of the works of the famed collective.
This event is part of Park Avenue Armory’s Artists Studio series, curated by Jason Moran. Presented in dialogue with the eclectic design of the historic Veterans Room, the Artists Studio features a range of contemporary performances across genres by artists who blur the lines of artistic categorization. The 2023 Artists Studio series spotlights The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, Inc. (AACM), a revolutionary collective of artists, musicians, and creators from a range of backgrounds have been blending art forms and pushing boundaries for nearly 60 years.Buy tickets/get more info now
