Blue Night: An Evening with Daniel Alexander Jones

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 6:00pm
Free, RSVP requested
Daniel Alexander Jones


Creative Research Fellow Daniel Alexander Jones meditates on nearly 25 years in performance art and theatre with a collection of essays as distinctive as his body of artistic work. BLUE, subtitled “notes from the crossroads”, marks the intersection of memoir, artistic history, spiritual journal, manifesto, and creative workbook. Jones is a celebrated artist who extends, through his work, an aesthetically daring and civically engaged lineage of art makers rooted in the Black American Avant-Garde and interdisciplinary traditions.

For BLUE NIGHT, Daniel will read excerpts from the book and share archival images and video. Renowned director and educator, Valerie Curtis-Newton, will then interview Daniel and lead a public Q&A session.

This event is free, but RSVP is requested. Click here to RSVP.

Blue Night: An Evening with Daniel Alexander Jones is presented in partnership with Meany Center for the Performing Arts and the UW School of Drama. Daniel Alexander Jones is a Fellow with the Creative Fellowships Initiative, an interdisciplinary pilot project at the University of Washington exploring the nature of creative research.
