As part of Olivier Mosset’s “Exposition de groupe,” the artist organized two nights of concerts featuring friends and colleagues from Tucson and New York City. 

Arto Lindsay (b. 1953) has stood at the intersection of music and art for more than four decades. As a member of DNA, he contributed to the foundation of No Wave. As bandleader for the Ambitious Lovers he developed an intensely subversive pop music,a hybrid of American and Brazilian styles.. Throughout his career, Lindsay has collaborated with both visual and musical artists, including Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Matthew Barney, Caetano Veloso and Rirkrit Tiravanija.Having been involved with carnaval in Brazil for many years in 2004 he began making parades.

Cory Henry is a multi-instrumentalist and producer with a catalog worthy of a man twice his age. His primary instrument is the organ, which he began playing at the age of two.

Henry is primarily known for harmonically rich organ playing that owes a greater debt to the virtuosic unpredictability of Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson. In his best moments he seems to capture the breadth of the Jazz and Gospel idioms and produce something altogether new through his unique blending of the two genres.

In 2010 he released his first album Christmas With You, which featured his lively renditions of Christmas classics and prominently showcased his skill as an improvisor. Kim Burrell's Grammy nominated and Stellar Award winning Love album released in 2011 boasted several tracks that were written and produced by Henry. Other artists he has worked includes Kenny Garrett, Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin, Robert Glasper, Mary Mary, The Roots, Bishop Jeffrey White, and many others.
Henry's latest release, Gotcha Now Doc was released in the Spring of 2012, and he's currently on tour with Snarky Puppy and also working on his third album which is to be released sometime in 2013.

Olivier Mosset “Exposition de groupe” is made possible with support from Spencer Brownstone Gallery, Koenig & Clinton, Dedalus Foundation, Inc., Cowles Charitable Trust, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
