    Info: Alex Harding & Lucian Ban have been at the forefront of contemporary jazz for more than two decades, collaborating and founding several groups together, releasing a handful of diverse albums for American and European labels, performing countless concerts and tours all the while documenting an amazing body of music. From their debut duet “Somethin’ Holy “ (cimp 2001) to their TUBA PROJECT group featuring legendary Bob Stewart, from Alex’s own BLUTOPIA featuring Nasheet Waits on drums to the quintet with soprano master Sam Newsome. “In near-telepathic collusion, Harding and Ban mean what they say” (Derek Taylor, AAJ) “Alex Harding and Lucian Ban have developed a fruitful partnership over the years. Harding's bluesy, church-steeped baritone sax is the logical heir to Hamiet Bluiett's, while Ban's tasteful, reflective piano playing combines the elegance and technical precision of the European classical tradition with wide-ranging musical interests and a passion for improvisation” Jeff Stockton, ALL ABOUT JAZZ Born in Detroit (baritone sax & bass clarinet) has worked and studied with Yusef Lateef at the University of Massachusetts in 1990, toured Europe performing "Porgy and Bess". Alex joined the Julius Hemphill Saxophone Sextet in 1993 then began working with people such as: Muhal Richard Abrams, Craig Harris, Lester Bowie, Clark Terry, Joe Bowie (Defunkt), Frank Lacy, Hamiet Bluiett, Oliver Lake, Greg Osby, David Murray (big band), Sun Ra Arkestra and the Queen of soul Aretha Franklin at the 2001 "Divas Live" at Radio City Music Hall in New York. The critics have hailed him as “the new voice on baritone saxophone, the carrier of the great legacy of Harry Carney, Pepper Adams and Hamiet Bluiett” . Alex Harding has released several albums as a leader garnering glowing reviews and appeared as guest on more than 20 albums. www.alexharding.net Pianist Lucian Ban has "ricocheted among orthodox post bop, free jazz, and inspired hybrids—including his inventive arrangements of the music of Romanian composer

    Info: A colorful medley of text and shapes that map out the performer’s directions in terms of routes and guidelines from whichever point of entry they so desire. Powerful images of mythical landscapes that can stand alone as an object that draws the viewer into his mysteries. Much in the manner of the Free Jazz movement of the 50’s and 60’s where musicians intended to extend or alter normal jazz principles, opems are unrestricted in their performance rules and structures. According to Basinski, “Opems are appropriated, original or magical writing, writing in process, and they are therefore written with markers and pens.” “Manifested specifically for this exhibition,” Basinski explains, “these opems are improvisational verbal scores, sound poems, song, poetry, and visual poetry for solo or choral recitation and orchestration. With multiple access points, the opems are combinations of letters, colors, prepared found materials, images, and languages that may be manifested for variable durations.” Michael Basinski is a Western New York-based text, visual, and sound poet whose work is heavily influenced by Fluxus, the interdisciplinary avant-garde art movement that gained international attention in the 1950s and 1960s for its emphasis on chance operations, collective or anonymous authorship of artworks, and ephemeral gestures. Having worked with such legends as Jackson MacLow, Dick Higgins, Allison Knowles and John Cage, Basinski’s work evolved from a strict rhythmic performance structure, both as solo performances as well as ensemble, to a visual poem or manuscripts forming improvisational poeming without any specific starting location or ending point. Basinski calls these visual poems or performances opems.

    Info: Curated by the Trans-Empire Canal Corp (TECCORP) and Burchfield Penney. TECCORP consists of six artist/curators that began meeting in 2012, with the idea to use the Erie Canal as a lens to consider the connections between communities, contemporary art, history and communication. Just as the Erie Canal took over seven years to construct, the TECCORP team and the Burchfield Penney continue our conversations. In 2014, the partnership presented the exhibition, Displacement. In the largest gallery of the Burchfield Penney, a simulated, 120’ x 39’ canal barge was constructed and outfitted with galleries for exhibiting art. In these spaces, questions of commodity, aesthetics, inclusion and value were considered and formed the platform for which artists’ works were curated. The result was a mish-mash of the varied possible items one might ship, value or encounter in a world of interaction and engagement and ways that community connects, facilitated by the Erie Canal. In New York State, there are over 170 historical markers related to the Erie Canal. These include the notation of canal locks, but more frequently for factoids like, “Only road under the Erie Canal in Ripley's Believe It or Not. Culvert built in 1823,” for The Culvert Road in Ridgeway, NY. Another example is, “Site of Queen Anne Chapel, Built 1711-12 for use of Mohawk Indians. Torn down 1821 to make way for Erie Canal…,” in Fort Hunter, NY. Whether for relics no longer in existence, or facts confirmed by Ripley’s and the like, history—and our remembrance of it—continuously evolves. Artist/curators Erika Abbondanzieri, Julian Montague, AJ Fries, Kate Gaudy, Dietrich Olivier Delrieu-Schulze, and Brian Larson Clark have created truthy versions—hypothetical and real possibilities of places and sights of significance related to the Erie Canal—that one might encounter in our contemporary world. Installed throughout the museum are videos, sculptures, paintings, banners and ephemera that provide a context for considering the Erie Canal, encountered in th
