Curated by Bennett Simpson of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, this group survey uses jazz, blues and hip-hop to frame 20th- and 21st-century art. Some of the works on view allude directly to the music, while others relate to the themes associated with same—such as heartbreak, the Man and being broke.
