JAN 25 · 2:30pm–5:00pm
The Baltimore Kissa Society is proud to present a listening party of jazz music to nourish your soul inside the terrace gallery of Mickalene Thomas: A Moment’s Pleasure at The Baltimore Museum of Art. Presenters Alexander Jarman and Vaunita Goodman will offer a playlist of tracks by important soul jazz artists, including some that transitioned from their jazz roots to become soul, funk, or R&B artists outright after the 1960s. Vinyl recordings of artists such as Jimmy Smith, Charles Earland, George Benson, The Crusaders, and Kool and the Gang, plus many more, will all be featured.
Complimentary drinks and a few bites of soul food will complement the experience. Kissa Society sessions are always free and open to everyone, regardless of their jazz knowledge.
About Open Hours
Individuals or organizations that question, challenge, or expand traditional systems of knowledge and power are invited to propose and present an Open Hours program, hosted by the BMA. Critical, informative, participatory, or just plain fun, Open Hours events are free, open to the public, and explore ideas of media consumption, late stage capitalism, and the production of knowledge—themes explored in the exhibitions DIS | A Good Crisis and Commons Collaboration: Get Your Life! now on view. For more information or to propose a program, please contact Dave Eassa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
