SAAM is excited to present an incredible collaboration between renowned artist and filmmaker Mickalene Thomas, and Grammy Award-winning drummer and composer Terri Lyne Carrington. Entitled /’entrəpē/, the performance features Thomas mixing her newest video works, accompanied by Carrington on drums with a deejay and trumpet player. It will be a riot of sound and color, a palpable, queer, futuristic, dynamic, moving, and unpredictable experience. The performance will be followed by a conversation and a Q&A with the artists. This must-see event is for one night only.

Tickets are $30: tickets will not be available at the door.

Thomas is a distinguished visual artist, filmmaker, and curator. Her work, mostly large-scale portraits of women posed against boldly patterned backgrounds adorned with rhinestones, combine references from art history, politics, and pop-culture that challenge common definitions of beauty, sexuality, and black female identity. Carrington is an award-winning drummer, composer, and bandleader. After a twenty-year career touring with luminaries including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, and Dianne Reeves, she became a professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
