Join us next Saturday, October 12, from 1–6 pm for the New York debut of Kara Walker's (@kara_walker_official ) Katastwóf Karavan. The piece, a steam-powered calliope housed in a parade wagon, is programmed to play a compilation of jazz, gospel, and songs that, in Walker’s words, represent both “Black protest and celebration.” At 6 pm, artist and musician Jason Moran (@thejasonmoran ) will play the calliope himself live. Learn more at our link in bio. —

Loved seeing this in Algiers New Orleans...the calliope mixed in with the actual sound of a paddleboat docked across the mississippi river

It is incredible to see a group of people pretending to like that noise making monstrosity while plugging their ears with their fingers and museum staff handing out ear plugs. 🤦🏻‍♂️
