Photographer Alec Soth — “a celebrated chronicler of American contemporary life” (The Guardian) — collaborates for the first time with drummer/composer Dave King of the jazz duo The Bad Plus, who is “better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-‘60s jazz and indie rock” (The New York Times). The result: The Palms, a semi-improvised, photo-sharing, new work-in-progress performance that delves into the physicality of memory that’s been lost in our digital age.

On June 26, The Palms will close out Time of Now – a multidisciplinary, day-long exploration of memory and history.
