Sunday, Sept. 22 Monday, Sept. 23.
The Staples Singer great has hardly slipped into the nostalgia circuit in her golden years. In June, she put out "One True Vine," her second collaboration with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy (the first won a Grammy). Both find her mostly interpreting other people's songs. Check out her cover of Funkadelic's "Can You Get to That" and footage from The Staple Singers at Wattstax doing "Respect Yourself" on the jump.
The thing about "portable"/"recreate-able" installation art is that it kind of invalidates the whole concept…
Does the work become a "sculptural piece"? (And is the flat wall, the video?)
