The Renaissance Society presents the first comprehensive exhibition of Smith’s Ankhrasmation scores. The more than 45 works on paper include the first of Smith’s scores to use non-standard visual directions, The Bell, which was debuted on Anthony Braxton’s seminal 1968 recording, Three Compositions of New Jazz. A number of scores from the exhibition will be performed by Smith’s Golden Quartet in a concert on October 24, and Smith will perform solo in the gallery on October 25.
