Wednesday, December 8

Presented by Bank of America, Wednesday Night Live: A Levine Arts Series includes free admission to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts + Culture, and the Mint Museum Uptown every Wednesday night from 5 - 9 PM. In addition, live entertainment or programming will be presented each week, rotating among the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts + Culture, the Knight Theater, and The Mint Museum. 

On December 8, along with free admission from 5 - 9 PM, the Bechtler will present two 30-minute performances by Your Neighborhood Orchestra (YNO), drop-in tours of current exhibitions, and access to a free Modernism + Film screening of Isaac Julien’s Young Soul Rebels.  

Musical Performances by Your Neighborhood Orchestra (YNO) 

5:30 PM and 6:30 PM

Special musical guests Your Neighborhood Orchestra, featuring Master Kie and RoyalCity Lif, perform a mix of hip hop with contemporary classical. YNO is a professional graffiti-style street orchestra that strives to bridge, innovate, uplift, and challenge the status quo - spotlighting a wide range of original music in the local Charlotte-area scene and beyond. Each performance is 30 minutes.  

Modernism + Film | Young Soul Rebels

7:30 PM

Join us for a special FREE screening of Isaac Julien’s 1991 film Young Soul Rebels. This film, set in 1977, follows the story of an East London DJ accused of murdering his partner. Young Soul Rebels was Julien’s first feature film and was released in theaters, making it a fascinating comparison to Isaac Julien: Lina Bo Bardi - A Marvellous Entanglement on view in the museum’s galleries. Artist and scholar Shambhavi Kaul, Associate Professor in Art History and Visual Studies at Duke University, will give remarks on the historical and artistic context surrounding this work. 

This film is rated R for sexuality and language. Viewers under the age of 17 require accompanying parent or adult guardian.

Tickets to the film are free but must be reserved as space is limited. 


Drop-In Exhibition Tours

Enjoy guided tours of the Bechtler’s exhibitions. Tours will meet at the admission desk located in the museum's lobby. Tours are drop-in style, so registration is not required.
