The Studio Museum in Harlem & The Park Avenue Armory | Interrogations of Form: Culture in a Changing America
This concert, concluding a long day of panel discussions, reinforced a theme: the need for artists to physically congregate, to make new — and safe — spaces and to enliven these spaces with soul, connection, energy, and spirit.
