Boston-based Castles of our Skins is a performer-led nonprofit organization and concert series dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music by spotlighting both unsung and celebrated figures of the past and present. Musicians from Castles of our Skins present “In Black & White,” a program that responds to the exhibition Riffs and Relations: African American Artists and the European Modernist Tradition. Tracing a parallel musical line of enquiry into the vivid exchange of visual aesthetics between 20th and 21st-century African American artists and European modernists, “In Black & White” showcases the lengthy and often complicated artistic intermingling between the work of African American composers and European aesthetics. Castles of our Skins explores dialogues and divergences between the music of Jeffrey Mumford and Luciano Berio, Florence Price and Antonín Dvořák, Anthony R. Green and Béla Bartók, and Jonathan Bailey Holland and György Kurtág.
