Douglas R. Ewart : Expressions
‘Douglas Ewart : Expressions’ explores Ewart’s career and evolution as a musician within the context of his 40+ year connection to the AACM.
Chicago-based nonprofit Experimental Sound Studio (ESS) is collaborating with inimitable composer, improviser, and visual artist Douglas R. Ewart to present “Douglas Ewart : Expressions,” an exploration of Ewart’s dynamic, cross-disciplinary practice. ‘Expressions’ will take place as an installation and a series of live events across multiple platforms from July 31-October 25, 2020. An immersive, evolving installation in ESS’s Audible Gallery will include his personal collection of historical artifacts, film, sculptures, and memorabilia, Ewart’s current multimedia work, and new works created on-site with artists who have made significant impact on the international creative arts and music communities. Over the course of 3 public performances at ESS, Ewart will collaborate with rotating ensembles of AACM artists from across generations, including prominent luminaries Ed Wilkerson Jr., Mwata Bowden, Dee Alexander, Jeff Parker, Kidd Jordan, and others.
