“The blues are the only consistent art in the United States which constantly remind us of our limitations while encouraging us to see how far we can actually go.“ -Ralph Ellison
Please join us for an afternoon performance of sound, movement, and spoken word with Charlie Chan (harmonica, guitar, spoken word), Ben Finley (bass & FX), Cameron Washington (poems and spoken word), and Chris Ryan Williams (trumpet & FX) on the occasion of Joe Ray’s Complexion Constellation.
Inspired by Ray’s explorations of inner and outer space, the performers incite a trajectory through the exhibition galleries through a told history of the harmonica and slide guitar, poems, movement, and electro-acoustic trumpet and bass sounds that seamlessly weave into each other and speak of the blues as symbolic expression of the human condition.
