Grand Performances (GP) amplifies the voices of artists Layla Locklear (Tuscarora/Oglala Sioux), Charly Lowry (Lumbee/Tuscarora), and Bear Fox (Akwesasne/Mohawk Nation) for a first-time collaboration in Los Angeles.

Locklear is an accomplished musician, Native American rights activist, and advocate for Traditional Ecological Knowledge. Lowry makes passionate music that intersects with her activism in standing up for Lumbee and Native American rights. Both Locklear and Lowry are members of Ulali Project – one of the most important and enduring Native American women’s ensembles. The group is known for blending voice and hand percussion to create a groundbreaking contemporary sound which was warmly received by GP audiences in 2018. Bear Fox is a solo artist and member of the Akwesasne Women Singers, an ensemble of native voices driven to protect and preserve the Kanien’keha (Mohawk Language) traditional customs.

Gee’s Bend: Shared Legacy

See an installation of prints made by members of Gee’s Bend Quiltmakers’ Collective. The pieces were created by pressing original quilted fabric designs face down on a wax-coated printing plate that captured the fabrics’ texture, seams, and stitching of the original. Through this innovative process, a quilt is translated to a printed surface—a new medium to explore and share the quiltmakers’ creativity. “Gee’s Bend: Shared Legacy” is presented in two six-month installments, each featuring a selection of 12 prints.
