STAGED is two stand-alone sculptural installations that recreate architectural elements from two historic New York City jazz spaces: The Savoy Ballroom and The Three Deuces.
These two spaces represent two distinct eras of American jazz: the 1930s swing era and the 1950s be-bop period. The musical repertoire changed dramatically from the 1930’s to the 1950’s, mirroring the shifts in the political, social, and economic landscape of African-Americans as they approached the cusp of the civil rights movement.
