JUL 27 · 2:00pm–4:00pm
Join the musical master craftsman Abu the Flutemaker for an interactive performance of a selection of his hand-made instruments. "I can make a musical instrument out of anything!" exemplifies his life-long approach to experimenting with and creating instruments out of found objects. See and hear about his work, and then join him for an improv group performance. After the performance, feel free to stick around and learn more about Abu’s instruments and purchase one for yourself.
This free event will be held on the front steps outside the BMA's Historic Merrick Entrance. In case of inclement weather, the performance will take place inside the BMA's Commons.
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.
