We Want Miles! Or should I say, ‘Queremos Miles!’
Following successful showings in Paris and Montreal, the We Want Miles exhibition has traveled south – South America that is.
The life and work of trumpeter Miles Davis will be exhibited at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brazil in Rio de Janeiro between now and September 28. The exhibition is free.
Curated by Vincent Bessières and beautifully designed by the Cité de la Musique in Paris, the multimedia expo includes about 300-plus items, featuring recordings, artwork, photographs, videos, documentaries, clothing and musical scores provided by the Miles Davis estate and private collectors.
The big question is when will the We Want Miles exhibition arrive on U.S. shores — and where.
Easy guesses would be New York City, Chicago and San Francisco. Then again maybe St. Louis get to be first in line. Regardless, let’s hope the show makes it to numerous cities so more people will have the special opportunity to enjoy this terrific exhibition.
