Please join us for a dialogue with Jennie C. Jones and WQXR's Terrance McKnight. Jones dubs her artistic approach “listening as a conceptual practice,” a deceptively sparse way of describing her exploration of music and sound in material form. For Jones, “listening” describes a space of negotiation between noise and silence, art object and environment, and histories of the avant-garde. We will listen to the music that has informed her practice as Jones discusses the ways in which her interest in sound and music has shaped the work currently featured in Shift: Projects | Perspectives | Directions.

This program is free with museum admission. RSVPs are required. Seating is limited. Studio Museum members receive priority seating, subject to availability.
