Theaster Gates, 12 Ballads for the Huguenot House

In collaboration with a team of development workers-in-training from Chicago and from Kassel, Theaster Gates is restoring and reactivating the historic Huguenot House in Kassel. Once the restoration is completed, the house will be turned into a meeting place and location of varied performative and social events. Part of these events, The Black Monks of Mississippi, an ensemble of Chicago-based musicians, give multiple performances throughout the days and the evenings of the opening week of the exhibition. The Black Monks of Mississippi has performed with Theaster Gates over the years, calling on the rich jazz, blues, soul, and gospel traditions of the US.
