Breaking the Ice

Christian Haye (Art Dealer and Founder of The Project) is in conversation with artist Melvin Edwards to discuss the historical and political legacies played by the pioneering galleries Just Above Midtown (JAM) founded by Linda Goode Bryant (1974–1986) and Haye’s The Project (1998–2009), as critical platforms for African and African American artists.

Moderated by Ugochukwu-Smooth C. Nzewi (Curator of African Art at the Hood Museum, Dartmouth College, Hanover).
