Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae will present her years-in-the-making Black Rainbows project at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
Inspired by the objects and artworks collected by Theaster Gates at the Stony Island Arts Bank in Chicago, the work includes a collection of songs, a book Refraction/Reflection of the Arts Bank photographed by Koto Bolofo, live performances, visuals, lectures and exhibitions—a bold move from her previous work.
Please note that the event has a very limited capacity.
