Art of Jazz: Form/Performance/Notes, a stunning new three-part exhibition at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art held in collaboration with the Harvard Art Museums explores the interaction between jazz music and the visual arts. With more than 70 pieces ranging from early jazz age objects to mid- century jazz ephemera to contemporary works by established African American artists, the exhibition explores the beginnings of jazz and traces how it was embraced internationally as an art form, a social movement and musical iconography for Black expression. 

 

In this group exhibition, Jason Moran presents STAGED: Three Deuces, a multidisciplinary piece recreating the stage of the iconic New York Jazz venue, which was previously shown in last year's Venice Biennial. 

 

*Please note that STAGED: Three Deuces will be on view through April 1, 2016.
