Kumi James (aka BAE BAE)

  • This is a past program

Sound artist and DJ Kumi James (aka BAE BAE), currently an artist in residence at the Hammer, will stage a performance in gallery containing Rita McBride’s installation Particulates. James’s work explores the immanence of what can be made of a moment, the vital nature of collectivity, and the integral connection between growth and decay. Performing with James will be Colloboh (a portmanteau of Collins Oboh)
