Jazz Journeys: Everyday Life Exhibition features photographs’ and musicians’ quotes from a collaborative pilot research project called Everyday Jazz Life, a photographic project on contemporary jazz musicians living in Birmingham.
The Jazz Journeys exhibition reveals some of the issues and constraints that jazz musicians face through their musical careers.
Homer’s photography of the six musicians involved in the project shows them cooking, teaching taekwondo, reflecting on care work, looking after their kids, repairing instruments and writing plays as well as the more well-known music teaching sessions.
In addition there will be a multi-media projection of Homer’s pictures contrasting fast paced performance shots with a slower paced images from the project – curated by artist Tony McClure who has also acted as a consultant to the exhibition.
The official launch of the exhibition takes place on 17th of January, 6pm-8pm at our gallery.
THE EVENT IS FREE.
