“I Call America” musical performance at Fridman Gallery

Fridman Gallery is pleased to present the first solo gallery exhibition by the renowned cross-discliplinary artist and experimental composer Matana Roberts. Roberts spent most of 2015 in a residency at the Whitney Museum of American Art. This visual work consists of several large-scale videos and tapestries, enwrapping the gallery in a kind of multi-media quilt. In conjunction with the exhibition, a program of musical performances will offer some of New York City’s leading improvisers a chance to interpret Roberts’ work and share their own takes on the contemporary state of the American ideal. Tonight features Mendi Obadike (spoken word), Keith Obadike (electronics), and Daniel Carter (saxophone). Doors open at 7:30pm.
