The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum’s first artist-in-residence, Allison Smith, will debut the site-specific exhibition and performance series Rudiments of Fife & Drum on Monday, May 27, 2013. The opening reception will coincide with the annual Memorial Day Parade in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
Rudiments of Fife & Drum explores the history of American fife & drum music, tracing its roots to the Middle East and reinterpreting the emblematic rope tension drum as a communication device, both on the battlefield and around the proverbial campfire.
