Charles Gaines: A Visionary Recital (After Terry Adkins) Performance

ICA Miami presents the Miami debut of A Visionary Recital (after Terry Adkins) (2017), a composition by artist and musician Charles Gaines.

Using a rigorous system of translation and notation derived from Gaines’s visual practice, Gaines converts a 1993 text written by Terry Adkins into a new musical composition with accompaniment by bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma, alto saxophonist Justin Robinson, and pianist Angelica Sanchez. This performance is presented on the occasion of the opening of “Terry Adkins: Infinity is Always Less than One,” a major posthumous survey dedicated to the late conceptual artist.
