In response to the Nearest Neighbor exhibition, the CCJO and the CAC presented a musical response to the art. The exhibition crosses the lines between commercialism and artistic expression in photography. Learn more about the exhibition here.
The newly arranged and composed music was inspired by the photographic works in the exhibit, playing with both formal and abstract structures in world premiere jazz charts by CCJO director of education and trumpeter Matthew Anklan. Steven Matijcio, CAC curator, and Matthew shared a presentation that ties the music and art together surrounded by the artwork in the gallery. Audiences heard music ranging from familiar standards to free form improvised works that directly reflect the dichotomy of the photographer and his pieces.
