Blind Man’s Buff, Blinde Kuh, (detail) Max Beckmann, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Winston.

Inspired by the recently restored triptych Blind Man’s Buff, created by Max Beckmann while in exile in Holland between 1937 and 1947, this concert explores the creative energy generated by the atmosphere in Europe during and after the war. This is the second program in a series of three Collaborative Performance Concerts featuring MacPhail teaching artists  Joey Clark, Nina Fan, Daniel McIntosh, Nina Olsen, Tom Pletscher, Momoko Tanno, and Francesca Tortorello. The pre-concert talk will be given by Erika Holmquist-Wall, assistant curator and provenance specialist in the MIA’s paintings department.

Pre-concert talk: 1 p.m. in the Friends Community Room.
