In August 2011 the We Want Miles exhibition traveled to Brazil, following successful stops in Paris and Montreal.
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.
As the expo concluded there was talk of more cities to host the wonderfully exhaustive history of Miles Davis, but thus far I am not able to track any news of upcoming expos.
For the U.S., it’s easy to think of New York City, Miami, Chicago and San Francisco as prime locations. Even St. Louis can be added to the list – considering the Miles Davis connection.
The more people who have a chance to see this thrilling expo the better. The question is whether or not the show is scheduled to tour America, or other cities around the world for that matter.
