Rescheduled from the 2019/20 season.

Boston-based Castle of our Skins is a performer-led nonprofit organization and concert series dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music by spotlighting both unsung and celebrated figures of the past and present. Musicians from Castle of our Skins present “In Black & White,” a program that responds to the exhibition Riffs and Relations: African American Artists and the European Modernist Tradition. Tracing a parallel musical line of enquiry into the vivid exchange of visual aesthetics between 20th and 21st-century African American artists and European modernists, “In Black & White” showcases the lengthy and often complicated artistic intermingling between the work of African American composers and European aesthetics. Castle of our Skins explores dialogues and divergences between the music of Jeffrey Mumford and Luciano BerioFlorence Price and Antonín DvořákAnthony R. Green and Béla Bartók, and Jonathan Bailey Holland and György Kurtág.

In partnership with the Boston Center for the Arts.
