  • IRIS AT THE BROOKS Guest Artist: Conrad Tao, composition & piano

    3:00pm - 5:00pm
    1934 Poplar Ave, Memphis, TN 38104
    Pianist and composer Conrad Tao will perform pieces by Beethoven and others alongside IRIS musicians at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art Hohenberg Auditorium. The featured exhibition for January 26th concert is Rotunda Project: E.V. Day. Artist E.V. Day has repurposed costumes from the New York City Opera archives to make sculptures that transform familiar icons of women’s empowerment and entrapment into new objects that confound conventional readings of these clichés. Using tension to suspend, stretch, and shred garments and to create forms that the artist likens to futurist abstract paintings in three dimensions, Day has created work that transforms rigid symbols into a range of emotions: anxiety, ecstasy, liberation, and release.
