The acclaimed Syrian audio-visual performance on the transformative power of art with clarinet virtuoso Kinan Azmeh and visual artist Kevork Mourad. A powerful reflection on the Syrian revolution and its aftermath, where art and music develop in counterpoint to each other, creating an impressionistic view of Syria's recent history. A pre-concert talk by cultural historian and Boston Globe music critic Jeremy Eichler, whose recent work explores the ways in which the past has been inscribed in sound, will be held at 7pm. A conversation with the performers will follow the 8pm performance. Co-sponsored by the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis Department of Fine Arts, the Department of Music, and CAST (Creativity, the Arts and Social Transformation).
Presented in conjunction with Immortal City, an exhibition of new paintings by acclaimed Syrian-Armenian artist Kevork Mourad, currently on view at the Rose Art Museum through January 21, 2017.
