CALAT – Croydon Adult Learning And Training – is working in partnership with Croydon Libraries to bring you a fantastic festive fair to celebrate Christmas 2022.
Art History – talk on Miles Davis – 11.30am start
We’ll be taking a look (and a listen) at some of Miles Davis’s key works, the context in which they were created and explore how his work developed from his beginnings in modern jazz.
Davis emerged at a time of great artistic, social and political upheaval.
This interactive and immersive presentation will look at how these factors influenced his life and his immeasurable impact on music in the 20th Century.
You’ll be in good hands as your host will be Mark Huggett who, as well as teaching art history at CALAT, runs the independent jazz label, Jazz Direct.
