Kamau Amu Patton is an interdisciplinary artist whose work engages with archives, documents, stories, and sites. On March 2, 2013, under the auspices of the Lone Wolf Recital Corps, along with Terry Adkins (1953-2014) and Blanche Bruce, Patton performed Amun (The Unseen Legends), described in the event's announcement as "an immersive improvisational experience in sound and light" in which the artists "explore passages through mercurial windows of appearance and invisibility." The recital featured a projection of Patton’s 2010 abstract film Theory of Colors, as well as improvisational sound. On the occasion of Projects 107: Lone Wolf Recital Corps Kamau Amu Patton re-stages Amun (The Unseen Legends), performing live electroacoustic improvisation to Theory of Colors accompanied by a digitally scrubbed recording of the 2013 recital in which only Adkins’s musical parts remain.
The program will commence with a screening of documentation of Patton’s 2008 performance Proliferation of Concept/Accident Tolerant, a precursor to Theory of Colors. The screening and performance will be followed by a conversation between the artist and Akili Tommasino, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Painting and Sculpture.
