John Coltrane
Yalik's Modern Art presents a documentary exhibit recounting former High Point resident John Coltrane's uneasy relationship with jazz critics during the tumultuous Civil Rights period. The exhibit titled, John Coltrane vs. the Jazz Critics: 1961-1966, coincides with the 2012 John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival, Saturday, September 1st.

Through an examination of photographs, letters, record reviews, commentaries, musical examples, and artifacts, Coltrane and the Jazz Critics details the strategies Coltrane employed to weather a concerted campaign by Down Beat magazine to discredit his musical experiments in the years before Coltrane produced his most original and enduring recordings.

The exhibit was conceived by David Tegnell, author of the article, “Hamlet: Coltrane's Origins," Jazz Perspectives (2007), and produced by gallery owner, Phyllis Bridges. Coltrane vs. the Jazz Critics is being underwritten by the Hayden-Harman Foundation and Friends of John Coltrane, and will run from August 24 to September 16th.

Yalik's will provide a narrated audio tour of the exhibit for visitors who bring cell phones with headphones. Admission is free. Yalik's Modern Art is located at 710 E. Washington St., High Point, NC. 27260 Gallery Hours: Wednesday through Saturday 10am-6pm and Sundays 1pm-6pm.
