Witnessing artists at work

A creative collaboration for the benefit of students


Eminent artist Joan Jonas, professor emerita in the School of Architecture + Planning’s Program in Art, Culture and Technology, collaborated this fall on a new performance piece with jazz pianist Jason Moran, a 2010 MacArthur Fellow hailed by critics as ‘the future of jazz’. The new piece, "Reanimation" — an improvisation of music, sound, movement and video — was debuted to a sold out MIT audience.
