It is Not My Music

Film screening in connection to Moment – Moki Cherry

4.11 2016


Welcome to a screening of the film It is Not My Music, in connection with the ongoing exhibition Moment – Moki Cherry. This film from 1978 is about Don and Moki Cherry and others who lived with them in the school house in Tågarp, Skåne, in the 1970s and onwards. It includes sequences from SoHo, New York, and Moki Cherry’s textiles on the walls in Hästveda and Long Island City.

About the film

Moki and Don Cherry met in the mid-1960s and soon began collaborating closely. They made happenings, music, art, posters and record sleeves, they performed together, organised workshops and toured. The film merges the different worlds they lived in – countryside and city life, and the various disciplines that were interwoven in their artistic practices. Some scenes also feature Eagle-Eye Cherry as a little boy and Neneh Cherry in her teens. Other musicians from that time include Collin Walcott, Rashied Ali, James Blood Ulmer and Naná Vasconcelos. Urban Lasson also appears in the film.
