The Innocents

A collaboration between UGA’s schools of art, law and music, The Innocents is a three-day residency exploring art’s role in advocating for social justice. The program centers around John Lane and Allen Otte’s piece of the same name, which uses found percussion, electronics and text to convey the emotions of Taryn Simon’s “The Innocents,” a photography exhibition portraying wrongly convicted Americans. The residency includes saxophone and percussion master classes for students, the presentation “Collaboration and Community: Cultivating a Performative Voice” and the panel discussion “Social Justice and Music: The Innocence.” The series culminates with a performance of “The Innocents” and Bent Frequency’s “Coming Together” and “Attica.” Check Flagpole’s calendar for locations and times.
