Artist Talks: Cody McKinney

The Walker presents an artist talk with Cody McKinney via Instagram Live

Every week, The Walker is going live on Instagram with artists from around the world! In conversation with Walker curators, they’ll discuss the issues that matter right now.

On August 5 at 12 noon (CDT) Doug Benidt, associate curator for Performing Arts, will speak with Minneapolis-based composer and musician Cody McKinney. They’ll discuss the artist’s approach to creating new scores for silent films and how musicians in the Twin Cities have adapted to making art in the time of COVID-19. McKinney has recently been commissioned to score short silent films from the Walker’s Ruben/Bentson Moving Image Collection for Sound for Silents, the popular summer program that will be presented in an online format August 20.
