Malachi Ritscher

Catalog Number: 
Zine, Malachi Ritscher
Date: 
December 2014
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
A profile on the life of Malachi Ritscher, a prolific audio recorder of the Chicago jazz scene from the early 1990s to 2006. The profile was written in response to an invitation by the 2014 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In writing about Mr. Ritscher, who died in November 2006, the author wants to "share something that the public may not know exists and to see the museum lend authority and importance to a life and a creative practice that probably would not receive museum consideration..."
