The Blanton presents a compelling and timely new installation of SoundSpace, our acclaimed music series. SoundSpace: Refugees features works written by, performed by, or depicting the experience of refugees. These performances occur throughout the museum in galleries featuring art that touch on refugee themes. This program is included with museum admission.
SoundSpace is organized for the Blanton by Artistic Director Steve Parker, who notes “Music and art cross national boundaries all the time. These creative works by refugees and about refugees’ stories can help reframe our ongoing public conversation about the role of immigrants and refugees in our daily lives.”
The program also includes the world premiere of a new work by Brent Baldwin, featuring Panoramic Voices, Nakia (from Season 1 of The Voice), and dancers Hassan Christopher and Alexa Capareda.
