X AVANT XV: Kaie Kellough/Jason Sharp | October 15
The Aga Khan Museum, in collaboration with the Music Gallery, presents
Kaie Kellough & Jason Sharp: UBGNLSWRE
Thursday October 15
Kaie Kellough and Jason Sharp were a memorable highlight of X Avant in 2017, in collaboration Tanya Evanson and Kevin Lo on “Interro”, a searing indictment of border security harassment. Both have gone from strength to strength since then, notably Kaie, who was the Canadian winner of this year’s Griffin Poetry Prize (and recently nominated for the Giller Prize). We are glad to be working with the Aga Khan Museum again – site of 2018’s epic Land Of Kush concert, with Jason in the band – to see these artists return to Toronto. As a music/spoken word/poetry duo, they are known for their remarkable, percussive avant-jazz sound. Together they will explore the liminal space between syllables, sounds, words, and rhythm with live video accompaniment in their new work UBGNLSWRE.
