Jesse Gilbert exploring transdisciplinary arts and culture

America’s National Parks at Walker Arts Center

Jesse will create live visuals for Wadada Leo Smith’s “America’s National Parks” at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis/St. Paul, March 30th, 2019.

An innovative, much-admired trumpeter and composer for half a century, Wadada Leo Smith presents an expansive, politically charged suite that pays tribute to America’s national parks as well as cultural zones not yet recognized by the government. Pairing his Golden Quintet (Pheeroan akLaff, Anthony Davis, John Lindberg, and Ashley Walters) with spellbinding video throughout, Smith explores and questions the luminous majesty, cultural histories, and violent realities of our natural areas—whether preserved, unprotected, or under attack.
