“Sound Check”: the first major exhibition of storyteller Thomas King’s jazz photography. King’s contribution to the discourse of contemporary Canadian photography focuses an acute eye and a behind-the-scenes perspective on twenty years of The Guelph Jazz Festival. In celebration of the Festival’s 20th anniversary, the MSAC’s 35th anniversary, and ICASP’s capstone year, we are collaborating on this presentation of Thomas King’s jazz photography. MSAC, GJF, and ICASP have co-published the exhibition catalogue, which contains a jointly written foreword by Ajay Heble (GJF) and Dawn Owen (MSAC), an interview with Tom King by Dionne Brand, an essay by Mauricio Martinez, and a biographical profile by Christine Bold.
