Jazz, together with film and rock, was one of the most foremost artistic happenings of the 20th Century. This exhibition offers an across-the-board reading of its complex history, based on a chronological structure providing a narrative thread that follows a timeline marking the main events in the history of jazz.
The exhibition “The Jazz Century”, on at the CCCB, gives a chronological review of the relationship between jazz and other disciplines. So, the exhibition demonstrates the influence of jazz on the works of Picabia, Man Ray and Mondrian as well as the creation of its own set of aesthetics based on covers, concert programmes and other publicity material.
