Art and music have long engaged in cultural dialogue and exchange. This talk by Jody Patterson, Associate Professor and Programme Leader for Art History, Plymouth University, will address the impact of jazz music and the dynamics of improvisation on the development of modern art.
From Kandinsky’s early abstractions to Matisse’s vibrant paper 'cut-out’ collages, the new rhythms of jazz inspired artists to fuse European tradition with African American expression, pushing the conventional boundaries of painting.
