December 12, 2014

The Propeller Group and Christopher Myers explain their collaboration for Prospect.3 to Kerry James Marshall; a multidisciplinary installation surveying the international reach of the brass band tradition.

“New Orleans is a blend of cultures, where [people] don’t have a straight line of where the tradition is from,” says Myers.

The Propeller Group

The Propeller Group consists of Phunam, Matt Lucero, and Tuan Andrew Nguyen, was formed in 2006 and is based in Ho Chi Minh City. The collective creates large-scale productions that combine fine art and media practices, often collaborating with international artists and cultural producers.

Christopher Myers

Christopher Myers was born in New York, where he continues to live and work. An acclaimed writer and illustrator of young-adult literature, Myers’s artistic practice is equally rooted in his storytelling and interest in global affairs.

Kerry James Marshall

The subject matter of Kerry James Marshall’s paintings, installations, and public projects is often drawn from African American popular culture, and is rooted in the geography of his upbringing. Marshall’s work is based on a broad range of art-historical references, from Renaissance painting to black folk art, from El Greco to Charles White. A striking aspect of Marshall’s paintings is the emphatically black skin tone of his figures—a development the artist says emerged from an investigation into the invisibility of Black people in America and the unnecessarily negative connotations associated with darkness. The sheer beauty of his work speaks to an art that is simultaneously formally rigorous and socially engaged.
