In Black and White

In Black & White

This is a virtual event.

Inspired by The Phillips Collection’s “Riffs and Relations: African American Artists & the European Modernist Tradition,” exhibit, Castle of our Skins presents In Black & White: a musical dialogue between African American composers of recent times and European composers with whom they were engaged. As Riffs and Relations seeks to draw visual connections, In Black & White showcases the lengthy and complicated intermingling with African American composers and European aesthetics.
