Artist and independent curator Ellen Martin will discuss with Peter Bradley his work and career that spanned over fifty years. Points of discussion will include curating the first major show in the US to comprehensively integrate white modernists with their black contemporaries; his work as New York’s original black art dealer — Associate Director at the prestigious Perls Gallery on Madison Ave where he sold Calders, Picassos and other 20th century modern masters; his time spent in South Africa in the 1980s responding to apartheid through sculpture; the importance of music and art; and Bradley’s love for Golden Paints, among other topics. The interview will be followed by an audience Q&A.
