Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG)-Qaumajuq are celebrating Black music makers with a new series of free concerts and mixers in the iconic gallery space. The partnership was launched in February with a packed Black History Month event, laying the foundation for the ongoing community-building events through the BPM program.
BPM X WAG-Qaumajuq
Friday, May 26, 2023
Featuring Anthony OKS, Marisolle, Ben Tamana
Mixer 6 - 7 PM
Concert 7 - 9 PM
Eckhardt Hall @ Winnipeg Art Gallery, 300 Memorial Blvd
The next event will return to WAG-Qaumajuq on Friday, May 26 and feature sets from acclaimed hip hop artist Anthony OKS, pianist and vocalist Marisolle, and Afrobeat/pop/R&B singer/songwriter Ben Tamana. Hosted once again by Free Press journalist and writer, Julia-Simone Rutger, the evening will be intimate and interactive, allowing the artists to express themselves through stripped-down, visceral performances that will address identity and community, and celebrate the African Diaspora.
The performances will be preceded by a mixer for Black music makers as well as local music companies, labels, venues, and festivals looking to make deeper connections with the Black music community in Manitoba. Meetups for artists and music entrepreneurs are core to BPM’s community-building focus, offering an opportunity to share ideas, professional needs and barriers, and make vital career connections.
