Jason Moran is known as an incomparable jazz pianist and composer of personally expressive, challenging, and groundbreaking work. He has also long incorporated aspects of contemporary mixed-media art into the stagecraft of his performances. Now the Walker Art Center presents Moran’s first museum exhibition. Included in the show are his sculptural vignettes STAGED: Savoy Ballroom 1 and STAGED: Three Deuces (both 2015), inspired by historical music venues. The works were a highlight of the 2015 Venice Biennale. There’s also a new commission from the STAGED series that harkens back to New York’s Slugs’ Saloon. Moran’s charcoal drawings and time-based media works are on view as well, along with collaborations with such art world luminaries as Joan Jonas, Lorna Simpson, Glenn Ligon, Julie Mehretu, and Theaster Gates.
