BEAMED FROM TOMMORROW – SUN RA

NYT2009042918384216C

The maveric intergalactic musician Sun-Ra never ceased to intrigue me. There’s a great exhibition of some of his previously unseen paintings, drawings, manuscripts and emphemera, showing at the Chicago Institute of Contemporary Art through August 2nd.

This exhibition examines how Ra and his dynamic, continually-evolving ensemble, the Philadelphia-based Arkestra, crafted both their otherworldly image and fiercely independent approach to self-production. Don’t miss this.
