“(re)Shaping Jazz to Come: Dialogues with Recordings from the Music's Past” commissions artists to conceptualize a performative work and/or collection of ideas that function in dialogue with a recording from jazz history, to consider not only the recording’s sound and musical character but also the cultural forces that helped make these sounds possible and how those forces might be reflected upon today. We hope artists don’t necessarily ‘play’ jazz, but rather think about it, explore it, reflect upon it - whether these thoughts involve issues of gender, race, authenticity, hierarchy, or simply “sound” - and consider how these sentiments might be relevant and (re)shaped today.
