What does composer John Cage mean to Bill T. Jones? What is Jones’ relationship with the work of other black artists, such as composer Julius Eastman or writer James Baldwin? Analogous to the adage ‘show me your books and I’ll tell you who you are’, Jones will share his worldview and perspective on art’s meaning and process through a series of works he has selected, most of which will be performed live by Dutch artists.

Jones will provide introductions and commentary and exchange thoughts with moderator Ikenna Azuike about high and low, black and white art and ‘The Funk’. Marcel Proust, Richard Avedon, Gertrude Stein, Robert Longo, Nina Simone and Cecil Taylor are all featured. At Jones’ request, Sabrina Starke will be performing a traditional African American lullaby, sung in the style of the singer and activist Odetta, often referred to as ‘the Voice of the Civil Rights Movement’. Jones is hoping for an evening that will ‘expand minds and open hearts’.
