This discussion series is dedicated to reflecting on the visionary artists and transformative art that has been, and continues to be, created in the Gatehouse. It is designed to highlight the significance of our WaterWorks commissioning program—past, present and future, while creating space for dialogue, community and transformational ideas. Join us for an intimate dinner party examining hidden influences in American Pop Culture and the importance of intersectional artistic practice; featuring WaterWorks artist Tamar-kali in conversation around her new work Demon Fruit Blues

She will be joined by Kyra Gaunt PhD, Elissa Blount Moorhead, Laina Dawes and Peg Schuler-Armstrong, in a conversation focusing on the role of the ‘Blues Woman’ in contemporary music and how the legacy of African American culture and traditions inform her new work. 

Only 50 tickets available.
