Jazz in mostra

After the great success of the first chapters of the exhibition, the concerts created exclusively for the Art Museum's exhibitions continue.

The next event will see the musicians interacting with the works of Ticino artist Davide Cascio, whose solo exhibition Chaosmos will be officially opened on Saturday 21 May. The following day, Sunday 22 May at 6.15 p.m., the hall of the Museum, where the large installation Spider Bee is set up, will host the concert of an extraordinary and unprecedented trio that, just like Cascio, expresses itself in a language that weaves together the codes of a multi-ethnic background: 

  • Nguyên Lê, guitar 
  • Baiju Bhatt, violin 
  • Valentin Conus, saxophone 

Three musicians from very different cultural backgrounds (Vietnam, India and Switzerland) led by one of the most important guitarists on the international contemporary scene, the French-Vietnamese Nguyên Lê, a masterful performer who has collaborated with artists of the calibre of Carla Bley, Randy Brecker, Trilok Gurtu, Steve Lacy, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Quincy Jones, Peter Erskine, Paolo Fresu, John McLaughlin, Michel Petrucciani, Enrico Rava and Herbie Hancock.

Together with violinist Baiju Bhatt and saxophonist Valentin Conus, he will create unique sounds, with improvisations inspired by the works on display, transforming the exhibition venue into a mental, intimate and mystical space.

For the occasion, the public will be able to attend seated (on the floor on cushions prepared for the occasion or on chairs placed to the side), so as to allow total physical and sound immersion between music and works of art. 

The ticket (20.- CHF/euro) includes entrance to Davide Cascio's exhibition and the concert with non-numbered seats. Seats are limited: reservation is strongly recommended at 058.688.33.50 or by email: museo@mendrisio.ch
