High Museum of Art

Event Description

These unprecedented times have changed many things. At the High, we want to bring you a moment of respite and fun in our galleries. For HIGH Frequency Friday in December and January, we are partnering with the Sound Table to bring you a soundtrack to enhance your art experience on the first Friday of each month.

Taking inspiration from the Julie Mehretu exhibition, DJs will create layered soundscapes in three different spaces of the Museum. This pop-up Sound Table night curated by the Sound Table’s Karl Injex is not to be missed.

The High is also pleased to screen Baptism (of The Sharecropper’s Son & The Boy From Boonville) by award-winning poet and artist Carl Hancock Rux, a three-part poem and the artist’s tribute to the legacies of civil rights leaders John Lewis and C. T. Vivian. Written and performed by Rux, the Lincoln Center commission also includes an eleven-minute abstract film titled The Baptism, directed by artist Carrie Mae Weems.

This short commission will be screened on a loop throughout the evening.

This is not your typical HIGH Frequency Friday. Activities will be spaced out throughout the Museum to encourage movement and social distancing.

Reserve your tickets today for the December 4 HIGH Frequency Friday. Walk-up tickets are not available. All tickets must be reserved online in advance.
