NCMA Groove: The Joy of Soul, Reggae, and Dancehall!
The NCMA welcomes DJ Thoro back for another NCMA Groove: Joy of Soul DJ set. This year’s music is an extension of the Michael Richards: Are You Down? special exhibition. Grab a friend and come enjoy an afternoon of classic soul, R&B, jazz, neo soul, hip-hop, with a focus on calypso, reggae, and dancehall that reflects Richards’s Jamaican and Costa Rican ancestry.
About the Exhibition
Michael Richards: Are You Down? takes its name from one of the last artworks Richards created during his lifetime. The retrospective features nearly all of the artwork Richards made during a prolific decade of artistic production between 1990 and 2001. The exhibition includes numerous sculptures and drawings as well as documentation of early site-specific installations and images of no longer extant work.
