Jason Moran Commission Project

Philadelphia Museum of Art



Jason Moran.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art commissioned an original composition by jazz pianist Jason Moran, developed in conjunction with the museum's 2008 exhibition Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt. The new composition was performed by the musical group Jason Moran & the Bandwagon as part of the museum's "Art After 5" music programming. Moran also presented a public lecture and performance about his compositional process and its intersection with the visual arts.
