This event also includes a reception and free exploration of a featured Memphis Brooks Museum of Art exhibition. The December featured exhibition is Paa Joe: Gates of No Return.
From 2004 to 2005, Accra-based artist and master craftsman Joseph Tetteh Ashong (b. 1947, Teshie, Ghana), aka Paa Joe, was commissioned to make a group of works that are architectural models of still-existing slave castles and forts located on the Gold Coast of West Africa. These “gates of no return” epitomize the beginning of the African American experience. Paa Joe’s architectural models, which recall forced displacement and inconceivable brutality, reactivate the voiceless souls who haunt the foundations of these sites.
Seating is limited. Subscribe today to purchase your tickets!
Subscriptions to both series are available now by calling the IRIS Orchestra office at (901) 751-7669.
Please note this performance is a special event not included in the season ticket packages for the Saturday GPAC or Sunday Brooks series.
