Always lovin’ the art/music mash-up…
Last week at Skidmore College’s Tang Museum in Saratoga Springs, celebrated composer, guitarist, singer and bandleader Howard Fishman led members of his ensemble in “Seeing the Invisible,” an evening of musical responses to the work of acclaimed photographers.
Fishman and company – Osei Essed, Dina Maccabee and James Harrison Monaco – selected photographs from The Tang’s vast collection, especially works relating to mid-20th-century New York City life. Among the selected works were photographs by Diane Arbus, Garry Winogrand and N. Jay Jaffee, as well as cityscapes by Joseph Pennell and Jessie Tarbox Beals; and portraits by Mike Disfarmer.
Fishman and his touring company are back in the spotlight at Skidmore again at 8pm tonight (Thursday, December 7), performing the multimedia theatrical meditation on the life and music of polymath Connie Converse. A Star Has Burnt My Eye, directed by Paul Lazar, will be performed at Skidmore’s JKB Theater through Saturday (December 9). Tickets are $18; seniors $12.
