Music in the Museum: Ah, Raza! The Making of an American Artist

Thu. Nov 15 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

- Free

In 1996 interdisciplinary artist and Colby music associate Gustavo Aguilar experienced a moment of psychic disequilibrium that prompted him to examine what it meant to identify as an American artist. Set against the backdrop of Aguilar’s bordertown hometown of Brownsville, Texas, Ah, Raza! The Making of an American Artist traces a line of continuity to the spaces that have mapped themselves out onto him, and to the people whose dispositions are also his own.
Part of the TUG Collective, this event features Gustavo Aguilar, conceptual design, composer/performer, Gaelyn Aguilar, video ethnography, and G. Daniel Lopez, photography.
A Q&A will follow.
