For acclaimed young composer and pianist Jason Moran, an interest in the Walker’s permanent collection, and the work of Adrian Piper in particular, led to the creation of a new composition and performance. The result is the theatrical jazz suite entitled Milestone, informed by his recent study of Piper’s photographic work, The Mythic Being: I/You (Her) (1974), and integrates its conceptual framework. Join Moran, vocalist Alicia Hall and Walker Curator Betsy Carpenter for a tour and discussion of The Mythic Being and the other works that captured Moran’s imagination. Meet in the Bazinet Garden Lobby.
