Fridman Gallery is pleased to present the first solo gallery exhibition by the renowned cross-disciplinary artist and experimental composer Matana Roberts, who spent most of 2015 in residency at the Whitney Museum of American Art, creating both visual work and musical compositions, responding to the Whitney’s new building and its inaugural exhibition, “America is Hard to See.” The residency culminated in a one-night installation and orchestral performance on December 31st, aptly titled “red, white and blues,” which questioned, in Roberts’s words, “the perplexities of what it means to be American in the twenty-first century.” It’s an honor to be included in the musical line-up which also included, Mary Halvorsen, Henry Grimes and Liberty Ellman. It’s is an incredible honor to perform duo for the first time with the formidable and incredible Joe Morris.
BARBES Residency with Jeremiah Lockwood
Jeremiah Lockwood is a wonderful guitarist and singer and bandleader that has relocated to the West Coast. I was part of a soundtrack project he put together a few years ago and that was intense and fun. We’ve also worked together on an Anthony Braxton Opera, Trillium J. Last year, he reached out for us to play as a duo on his yearly Barbes Residency last July and that was a hoot. truly. So glad he asked again and that’s happening next Saturday, July 9th at Barbes. Featuring Americana, the Blues and Gospel.
