Vijay Iyer is “one of his generation’s brightest jazz luminaries.” —Time Out New York
Composer/pianist Vijay Iyer and writer/photographer Teju Cole’s powerful new collaboration, Blind Spot, combines Cole’s photography and spoken prose with a live score composed by Iyer, featuring Patricia Brennan on mallet percussion, Okkyung Lee on cello, and Stephan Crump on bass. Drawing text from Cole’s book of the same title, Blind Spot investigates humanity’s blindness to tragedy and injustice throughout history.
A Q&A with the artists will follow the performance.
