Beloved Texas musician, songwriter and visual artist Terry Allen will be in conversation with Blanton Deputy Director Carter E. Foster about his current exhibition “MemWars” in the museum´s Contemporary Project gallery. Where does a song come from? That is one question the exhibition tries to answer. It includes a three-channel video installation featuring Allen performing 12 songs with introductions to each by Allen and his wife and collaborator Jo Harvey Allen, as well as a recent series of drawings. Foster and Allen will delve into songwriting, theatre, and drawing, and discuss Allen´s creative process and storytelling. More info on the show at
Funding provided by the Carolyn Harris Hynson Centennial Endowment.
