Contemporary Arts Museum to host saxophone performance art piece
The Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston is hosting a series of performance art performances as part of an exhibition titled Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art.
The exhibition is a survey of performance art by black, visual artists. It covers a history from the 1960s through to the present and will make use of video and photo documentation of performances as well as live performances, according to a museum press release.
The upcoming live performance for the exhibit is Jamal Cyrus, who will present "Texas Fried Tenor" from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29. The piece will explore the use of the saxophone in American music. The performance is part of his larger "Learning to Work the Saxophone." Cyrus became interested in the use of the saxophone in the blues and jazz after listening to "Deacon Blues" by Steely Dan repeatedly.
Admission to the museum is free.
The museum is at 5216 Montrose Blvd., Houston.
