Upcoming Performances & Exhibitions:
May 9 – July 27 – New solo exhibition from Canadian artist Abbas Akhavan at the Wattis Institute at the California College of the Arts:
June 29, 1 -2:30 pm – Jeremy Dutcher at the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival:
Hailing from the indigenous Wolastoq people of New Brunswick, Jeremy Dutcher is a classically-trained tenor who won Canada’s prestigious Polaris Music Prize last year with his strikingly beautiful debut album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa. A musicologist, performer and activist who currently lives in Toronto, Dutcher found his musical mission working in the Canadian Museum of History’s archives, painstakingly transcribing Wolastoq songs from 1907 wax cylinders. Long days at the archives turned into long nights at the piano as he created songs in deep dialogue with the voices of his ancestors. Unapologetically playful in incorporating classical influences, full of reverence for traditional songs, and pulled by the urgency of modern-day struggles, Dutcher’s music transcends boundaries of language, time and style.
