The Last Trumpet (1996) performance will feature the activation of Terry Adkins’ “Akrhaphones,” four eighteen-foot-long horns that were assembled by using the severed bells of trombones and sousaphones and segments of cast brass. These sculptural objects reference the horns of the first four angels of the Last Judgment and were dedicated to the artist’s father, Robert Hamilton Adkins, shortly after his passing in 1995. This recital will be performed by Blanche Bruce, Vincent Chancey, Joseph Daley, Dick Griffin, Kamau Amu Patton, and Marshall Sealy. This event is free to attend but space is limited; early arrival is encouraged.
The Lone Wolf Recital Corps is a rotating collective of multidisciplinary artists and musicians founded by Terry Adkins in 1986. To accompany Terry Adkins: Resounding, the Corps will perform a series of multimedia happenings that incorporate live music, video, spoken word, costuming, sculpture, and choreographic movement. Termed “recitals” by Adkins, these ensembles of objects, environments, and performances call attention to underrepresented historical figures.
