The exhibition PHOTO|BRUT is a continuation of the American Folk Art Museum’s commitment to champion the works of academically untrained artists—this time with a focus on the ever-changing field of photography, the frontiers and accessibility of which expanded proportionally with the invention of portable and affordable cameras.

PHOTO|BRUT provides the first international glimpse into this fecund territory, which has received little attention until recent years. This exhibition welcomes the substantial art brut photography collection of French filmmaker Bruno Decharme, which has already expanded and diversified since its presentation at the Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles in 2019. The current selection speaks to Decharme’s subjective collecting activity that brought him—without the parameters of a historical framework—from one discovery to another. The exhibition is complemented by the museum’s holdings, as well as by artworks treasured by American collectors and public organizations.

The exhibition unites more than four hundred early and recent works by forty artists—some recently unveiled, discovered postmortem, or on occasion brought into dialogue with contemporary art, as works by Marcel Bascoulard and Lee Godie have been. This selection, typical of the heterogeneous typology of photography, encompasses a wide spectrum of creations: Aside from traditional photographs, it also gathers collages made from printed materials, artworks that relied on the photographic process, and photographs that were never developed, such as slides and digital images.

To expose relationships between these various, inimitable artistic postures, PHOTO|BRUT is organized in four loose yet interconnected sections, probing themes of gender expansiveness, intimacy, image appropriation, and conjuring practices that seek connections to the imperceptible. These profound bodies of work are often process-based, subversive, and pluridisciplinary. As art historian Michel Thévoz observes, these creators “use the camera to play against type, by making their daily life an unreality or making their chimeras hyperreal. They use photography in spite of or beyond its presumptive objectivity, to imbue fantasy with the stamp of realism or, inversely, to sublimate an ordinary subject.”

Curators: Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Senior Curator, and Bruno Decharme in collaboration with Barbara Safarova, Sam Stourdzé, and Paula Aisemberg.

This exhibition is co-produced by the American Folk Art Museum, abcd, and the Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles.

PURCHASE BY INDIVIDUAL WEEK • ALL CLASSES 7PM ET

WEEK 1 • APRIL 28 – THE BIRTH OF JAZZ   REGISTER

We say that Jazz was born in New Orleans, but why? What was special about that city, and the people in it? During this class, we will explore the cultural make-up, the unique diversity, and the interplay of cultures you find in New Orleans. We’ll also listen to some of the earliest musical styles to come out of there, and we’ll give you insight into what the very earliest forms of Jazz might have sounded like.

WEEK 2 • MAY 5 – SPREAD OF JAZZ, EMERGENCE OF SOLOS   REGISTER

In this class, we’ll explore the earliest solos in Jazz and chart their evolution out of the collective format. Additionally, we’ll learn about the spread of Jazz outside of New Orleans, and the rise of some of the art form’s geniuses like Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton, and Louis Armstrong.

WEEK 3 • MAY 12 – JAZZ AGE BIG BANDS   REGISTER

Jazz musicians note the rising ballroom dance craze in America during the first decades of the 20th century, and they join the practice by forming dance orchestras. These ensembles serve as the earliest Jazz big bands.

WEEK 4 • MAY 19 – THE SWING ERA   REGISTER

By the 1930s, Jazz will transition into America’s popular music, and big bands will serve as the style’s primary popularizers. Bands become larger, arrangements become more complex, and record sales skyrocket by the end of the 1930s. We will explore how the music changed throughout this time.

WEEK 5 • MAY 26 – SMALL GROUPS OF THE JAZZ AGE AND SWING ERA   REGISTER

The 1930s saw a new generation of artists—Roy Eldridge, Ben Webster, Lester Young, Teddy Wilson, and more—who expanded upon the stylistic innovations of the 1920s and adapted them for the new rhythmic feel of the Swing Era. We will listen to some of these innovations, and also explore the emergence of Swing Song: Jazz vocals backed by small ensembles, as exemplified in the legendary work of Billie Holiday.

WEEK 6 • JUNE 2 – BEBOP   REGISTER

The 1940s saw a revolution in Jazz with the emergence of BeBop, an avant garde style that would supplant the Swing Era’s style to become the mainstream of Jazz. We will examine what made BeBop unique within the musical landscape.

WEEK 7 • JUNE 9 – COOL JAZZ AND HARD BOP   REGISTER

The revolution of BeBop sparked the emergence of new styles of Jazz. We’ll look at two of them tonight—Cool Jazz and Hard Bop—and explore how they emerged out of the BeBop revolution.

WEEK 8 • JUNE 16 – MODAL JAZZ AND FREE JAZZ  REGISTER

The revolution of BeBop sparked the emergence of new styles of Jazz. We’ll look at two of them tonight—Modal Jazz and Third Stream—and explore how they emerged out of the BeBop revolution.

WEEK 9 • JUNE 23 – LATIN JAZZ AND THIRD STREAM   REGISTER

Jazz’s history is marked by its combining with other styles and regional approaches to playing. In our 9th class, we’ll look at two unique fusions of styles: the combination of Jazz and Afro-Cuban musical styles to produce Latin Jazz, and the combination of Jazz and Classical music forms to establish Third Stream music.

WEEK 10 • JUNE 30 – FUSION AND UNDEFINABLES   REGISTER

Our final class looks at one more genre of fusion: Jazz-Rock fusion, and explores its emergence in the 1960s. We’ll also close out by exploring recordings that don’t cleanly or obviously fit into any specific genre of Jazz and discuss how they emerged.

Join Judith Ruskay Rabinor PhD in conversation about her new memoir, The Girl in the Red Boots, with Laura Zinn Fromm, author of Sweet Survival: Tales of Cooking and Coping.

About the book: Can a mother be loving and selfish? Caring and thoughtless? Deceitful and devoted? These questions fuel psychologist Dr.Judy Rabinor’s quest to understand her ambivalence toward her mother in her revealing memoir. Not a traditional self-help book outlining “steps” to forgive one’s mother, The Girl in the Red Boots is a poignant memoir filled with hard-won life lessons, including the fact that it’s never too late to let go of hurts and disappointments and develop compassion for yourself—and even for your mother.

“This is an introspective work . . . a fascinating examination of how daughters make peace with their moms.”―Kirkus Reviews

INSTRUCTOR: BOBBY SANABRIA

Latin jazz is a uniquely American art form, born in New York City with the legendary Machito and His Afro-Cubans under Maestro Mario Bauzá’s musical direction. Their fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms, jazz harmony and arranging technique, combined with the virtuosity of the jazz soloist was unprecedented. But this was only the first form of this genre. Join multi-Grammy nominated drummer, percussionist, educator, Bobby Sanabria as he explores the genres birth and its subsequent evolution into the multifaceted art form that today encompasses not only Afro-Cuban rhythms, but all of Latin America’s various styles.

All classes will be conducted live, and are not archived for future viewing.

Please note that a link to access your nightly classes will be found in the confirmation email you receive with your order. Nightly classes do not stream from this page.

 

PURCHASE BY INDIVIDUAL WEEK • ALL CLASSES 7PM ET

WEEK 1 • MAY 13 – THE ROOTS AND PRECURSORS TO LATIN JAZZ   REGISTER

At the core of all forms of Latin jazz are the rhythmic and cultural ties it has to Mother Africa. In no other place in Latin America is this more profoundly expressed than in Cuba. We will explore the musics basic rhythmic principal/building block, the clave, and its roots and function in styles that were brought directly from Africa to Cuba - bembé and orisha music (Yoruba/Nigerian tradition), Palo, Yuka, Makuta (Bantú/conga tradition), Abacua (Efik/Calabar tradition) and how they gave rise to popular music forms that were born from the fusion of Spanish and African traditions like the rumba, mambo, son, danzón and more, and its major transformative protagonist - Arsenio Rodriguez. Maestro Sanabria will also demonstrate instruments like the conga, bongó, cencerro, timbales, batá, guiro, shekere, claves and maracas giving historical, cultural context to their evolution as well as how their rhythmic vocabulary was transferred to the drumset. He will also explore the early antecedents to the eventual marriage of Latin rhythms and jazz like 19th century New Orleans pianist, composer Louis Morreau Gottschalk, the dance team of Vernon and Irene Castle with tango, Puerto Rican bandleader Augosto Cohen and his Orchestra, and pianist Don Azpiazú and His Havana Casino Orchestra who in 1930 introduced authentic Cuban music to North American audiences.

WEEK 2 • MAY 20 – THE BREAKTHROUGH: MARIO BAUZÁ AND THE MACHITO AFRO-CUBANS   REGISTER

Cuban born trumpeter, clarinetist, alto saxophonist, Mario Bauzá had been a child prodigy. His arrival to NYC in 1926 at the age of 15 changed his life as he was inspired by two things - Harlem, and the Paul Whitman Orchestra performing Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue. In the 1930's he was the lead trumpeter for Chick Webb, Noble Sissle, Don Redmond and Cab Calloway where he mentored Dizzy Gillespie. Mario’s dream? To form an orchestra that would fuse authentic Afro-Cuban rhythms with the elegance, power, and harmonic sophistication of a jazz big band. In Spanish Harlem in 1939 his dream would be realized when with his brother-in-law, vocalist Frank “Machito” Grillo they would form the Machito Afro-Cubans. It was the springboard for future stars like Tito Puente Tito Rodriguez, Cal Tjader, and the rise of the ultimate dance hall - The Palladium.

WEEK 3 • MAY 27 – THE GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY: BRAZIL   REGISTER

By the 1940’s two things had happened that would make Brazilian music part of the musical lexicon of North America. Portuguese born, Brazilian raised, Carmen Miranda was already a star on Broadway and in Hollywood and by 1940 had exposed U.S. audiences to samba. The second was the implementation of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Good Neighbor Policy” toward Latin America. This laid the groundwork for the next great movement in the Latin jazz continuum, the boss nova. We will explore major artists like Ary Baroso, João Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, Sergio Mendes, amongst others, and their influence on jazz musicians like Stan Getz, and rock bands like The Doors. We will conclude with modernists who fused Brazilian rhythms with jazz like Edison Machado, Airto, and the enigmatic genius, Hermeto Pascoal, whom Miles Davis called, “The greatest living musician today.”

WEEK 4 • JUNE 3 – THE MULTIVERSE - LATIN JAZZ TODAY, TOMORROW, AND BEYOND   REGISTER

Today Latin jazz has evolved into a literal Multiverse that can incorporate anything from tango from Argentina, cumbia from Colombia, bomba from Puerto Rico, wapango from Mexico, merengue from the Dominican Republic, funk from the U.S., etc. Artists like Astor Piazzolla, Cesar Orozco, Socrates Garcia, Airto, Flora Purim, Miguel Zenón, Irakere, and others will be explored, as well as the continuing struggle for Latin oriented jazz to gain mainstream acceptance in the jazz world despite its ubiquitous influence on it.
