Thank you to that old wise man of the advertising industry and jazz nut Len Weinreich, for bringing to my attention an exhibition in Paris of jazz and art, reviewed by Lionel Shriver (partner of superb jazz drummer Jeff Williams) in today’s Guardian.>
The exhibition is at the Musee du Quai Branly, and runs till June 28th. It is co-produced with galleries in Trento in Italy, and Barcelona.
My translation of the press release:
The exhibition, conceived by philosopher and art critic Daniel Soutif, shows chronologically the relationships between jazz and the graphic arts in the twentieth century. From painting to photography, from cinema to literature, without forgetting graphics or comic strips, the exhibition shows especially the development of jazz in Europe and in France in the thirties and forties.
