Charles Hinman Structures at Kreeger Museum

March 19, 2019

The Kreeger Museum presents Charles Hinman: Structures, 1965-2014, opening April 18, 2019 and running through July 31, 2019.

 

Charles Hinman is a New York-based abstract painter who pioneered three-dimensional, shaped canvases starting in the 1960s. This is the first museum show of works by Hinman in the Washington area and the first survey in more than 30 years. Hinman is best known for his compositions that emerge from the wall in a collection of hand-built and multicolored planes, expanding the conventional space of the canvas. Guest curated by Danielle O’Steen, the exhibition offers a look at 50 years of the artist’s innovative work.

Charles Hinman: Structures, 1965–2014 brings together historic paintings from the 1960s while also presenting objects that cast a new light on Hinman’s expansive, and ongoing, studio practice. The show includes painted canvases, cast paper reliefs, and other experimental artworks. The exhibition begins with the artist’s early, groundbreaking paintings from the 1960s and 1970s, including Sails, 1965, in The Kreeger Museum collection. The show reunites Sails with three works on loan from the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, as the paintings were all shown in Hinman’s 1965 solo exhibition at the Richard Feigen Gallery in New York. The exhibition then follows Hinman’s career in the subsequent decades, from his monumental and monochromatic paintings to his rarely-exhibited textiles and prints and drawings.

 

The Kreeger Museum is located at 2401 Foxhall Road, NW.

Eddie Palmieri Live at Blues Alley March 14-17

March 6, 2019

Bandleader, Arranger and composer of salsa and Latin Jazz, Eddie Palmieri will be performing live at Blues Alley March 14-17, 2019.

 

Known as one of the finest pianists of the past 60 years, Palmieri's playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri.

 

Palmieri’s parents emigrated from Ponce, Puerto Rico to New York City in 1926. Born in Spanish Harlem and raised in the Bronx, Palmieri learned to play the piano at an early age, and at 13, he joined his uncle’s orchestra, playing timbales.

Palmieri’s professional career as a pianist took off with various bands in the early 1950s including Eddie Forrester, Johnny Segui’s, and the popular Tito Rodriguez Orchestra. In 1961, Palmieri formed his own band, La Perfecta, which featured an unconventional front line of trombones rather than the trumpets customary in Latin orchestras. This created an innovative sound that mixed American jazz into Afro-Caribbean rhythms, surprising critics and fans alike. Palmieri disbanded La Perfecta in 1968 to pursue different musical endeavors, though he would return to the band’s music in the 2000s.

The world has long admired the Spanish Harlem born, seven-time GRAMMY® Award winning Palmieri as one of the foremost Latin pianists of the last half-century. His ability to fuse the rhythms of his Hispanic heritage with the jazz influences of Thelonius Monk and McCoy Tyner made him an immediate hit when he played New York's Palladium Ballroom in the '50s and '60s. He has continued to roll on with stylistic innovations over the years, creating classic Tico albums and later mixing salsa with R&B, pop, rock, Spanish vocals and more jazz improvisation.
