In anticipation of celebrating women in the arts via our fall exhibition #BertheMorisot: Woman Impressionist, we have invited Philadelphia poetry powerhouse Ursula Rucker to create a performance in response to the Barnes collection.

Rucker’s vision for the evening is inspired by the metalworks hanging throughout the galleries, on both floors and in every room—“ever-present and profound like black love,” she says. “Love brings family so come prepared for an a powerful gathering complete with live word, rhythm, music, sound, story, song, and imagery. In short, an evening of magic and mind/heart traveling and dope-ass live art-sharing.”

Featuring:
🎤 Ursula Rucker ringleader/narrator/orchestrator
🎶 Hprizm electronic sounds/music and visuals
🎶 Iron Gump world music percussion, space clearing, and blessing
🎤 Lady Alma vocal sinew/gospel conscience
🎤 Germaine Ingram vocals and dance
Anthony Molden live art-creating

Rucker's performance is the first in a series of Takeovers asking local artists to interpret the collection in any way they choose. Join us for this new take on the collection and then head into the galleries to see if the experience has changed your understanding of the artwork.

🎫 Tickets are $10.
