Teju Cole and Vijay Iyer: Blind Spot Performance

Memorial Hall

October 6, 2018, 5:00pm6:30pm

Vanguard composer and pianist Vijay Iyer and Nigerian-American writer and photographer Teju Cole perform the powerful interdisciplinary collaboration Blind Spot at Cincinnati’s historic Memorial Hall. Cole’s striking photography and spoken words are accompanied by a live score performed by Iyer’s adept trio—Okkyung Lee (cello), Patricia Brennan (vibes and marimba), Stephan Crump (bass)—for a musical investigation of humanity’s voluntary blindness to tragedy and injustice throughout history.
