Marcus Roberts Trio 7:30pm | Pompano Beach Cultural Center, 50 W Atlantic Blvd

Jazz great Wynton Marsalis has hailed Marcus Roberts as “the genius of modern piano”. The jazz virtuoso has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Charlie Rose, Tavis Smiley, NPR and more.

See him live in concert with jazz greats Jason Marsalis and Rodney Jordan

The Marcus Roberts Trio is known for its virtuosic style and entirely new approach to jazz trio performance. While most jazz trios have the piano front and center, all members of the Marcus Roberts Trio share equally in shaping the direction of the music by changing its tempo, mood, texture, or form at any time. And they do this with lightning quick musical reflexes and creative imaginations. The trio is known for having almost telepathic communication on the stage. And more than a few concert goers have been heard to say that it sounds like a lot more than three people up there on the stage!

Marcus Roberts lost his sight as a child, but gained incredible insight into American music — inspiring a generation of jazz musicians. Wynton Marsalis is the correspondent on CBS “60 Minutes”

Where do we begin and end?
Do Frontiers and Borders define us?

A global series of barrier-breaking, ceramic-based exhibits in Tehran, Paris, Istanbul, Tokyo and Pompano Beach.

The AD Visual Academy of Art in Iran has invited artists and curators around the world to explore these questions simultaneously with them using the ceramic medium, in hopes of spreading understanding and empathetic curiosity. In this politically fraught and tumultuous time, it is imperative that humanity be free to unite and connect to forge dynamic, artistic discourse.
Goals of the project:
• Comparing borders and frontiers in the contemporary world
• Cultivating connection with global artists and their works
• Addressing local, regional, and international concerns
• Utilizing ceramics in its extended field in order to recognize, and apply its potential in the field of fine arts/Push clay past its 'craft' role

In these series of exhibitions, artists are encouraged use mixed-media such as painting, photography, and videography, to compliment the inclusion of ceramics, when creating a piece.

This Academy has held an annual exhibitions featuring ceramics, which aims at attracting the artists’ attention to this medium. The 2017 "Frontier" exhibition was first held in Khaneh-Honarmandan, Tehran, one of the most prestigious art centers in Iran from July 20th - August 3rd.

The Academy has also invited a group of international curators to collaborate on the topic, and called for artists in various countries to hold exhibitions featuring their interpretations of the theme.

List of curators in the international section of the exhibits:
1. U.S.A.: Sarah Miller Benichou, Bailey Contemporary Arts, Sept 1-29
2. Japan: Ruriku & Shigaraki Gallery, date TBC
3. Turkey: Seren Kohen, date TBC
4. France: Jacques Kaufmann, date TBC
