In complement to Magnetic Fields: Expanding Abstraction 1960s to Today, which focuses on African American women’s approaches to abstract painting and sculpture, the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg is thrilled to be working with composer Elizabeth A. Baker to present an afternoon of abstract sonic experiences by African American women musicians and performers. In addition to Baker, we will host Chicago-based Renée Baker, and San Francisco-based Pamela Z. Each composer will perform at the MFA, and will participate in a panel discussion.
Taken together, this will be an important celebration of abstraction in multiple forms, and will allow for a multi-generational discussion between African American women practicing in avant-garde composition.
