Indie Music Week Silent Disco

Saturday, January 19, 2019

8 PM

Trustmark Grand Hall

Jackson Indie Music Week (JIMWeek) presents a silent disco dance party celebrating the culmination of the fourth annual JIMWeek and the Museum’s dynamic exhibition, Jeffrey Gibson: Like A Hammer.

Local DJs present curated playlists inspired by Gibson's genre-defying contemporary artworks, which mashup traditional indigenous aesthetics of the artist’s Choctaw and Cherokee heritage with song lyrics, pop culture, and themes of futurism and free expression. Embrace the expansive meanings of indigenous creativity, paying homage to those who first carved out lives on this land and to the innovative artists and musicians creating new and diverse understandings of what it means to be a contemporary Mississippi native.

Cash bar available.
