Join Hirshhorn Museum for a screening of the documentary ‘Looks of a Lot’,  followed by a discussion between musician and performance artist Jason Moran and visual artist Theaster Gates.

In May 2014, renowned jazz pianist, composer, and performance artist Jason Moran collaborated with visual artist Theaster Gates on Looks of a Lot, a live performance commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The similarly titled documentary by RoundO Films follows their collaboration. Also featured in the film are saxophonist and clarinetist Ken Vandermark and bassist and vocalist Katie Ernst, as well as students from the Kenwood Academy Jazz Band, musicians who were integral to the project.
