Columbia University School of the Arts presents a lecture-demonstration by fall 2015 Mellon Visiting Artist & Thinker Joan Jonas. The focus of the evening will be on the works that Jonas and Jason Moran have done together since 2005. This dialogue will involve live piano by Moran and occasional actions by Jonas in order to demonstrate their ways of working together. Video projections excerpted from these works will be shown throughout this conversation.

Information and RSVP

The Mellon Visiting Artists & Thinkers Program brings leading creative practitioners and theorists to the School of the Arts to engage with students, the Columbia University community, and the public. With the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this program creates opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to work with world-class artists and thinkers, while stimulating dialogue about the contribution of the arts to intellectual life and society at large.

Under the leadership of Dean Carol Becker, the Columbia University School of the Arts recognizes that the art world is in the vanguard of cross-disciplinary work. While the value of field-specific knowledge and mastery cannot be denied, practitioners in the arts increasingly require the skills and the space to collaborate, improvise, and experiment across disciplines. Creating space for a deeper engagement among art practitioners and theorists based at Columbia’s School of the Arts will not only directly connect a new generation of artists to ideas useful to them in their practice, but will also provide students and scholars across the university with access to new modes of understanding generated by artists. At the same time, this project will illuminate the increasingly significant points of intersection between all disciplines that now mark the uniqueness of 21st-century thought.

Joan Jonas is a pioneer of video and performance art, and an acclaimed multimedia artist whose work typically encompasses video, performance, installation, sound, text, and drawing.

Jazz pianist and composer Jason Moran was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2010.

Columbia University School of the Arts is currently accepting applications for fall 2016 admission. More information.
