Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill
This exhibition is a vivid, intimate, compelling photographic portrait of Billie Holiday, the consummate jazz and blues singer and one of 20th-century music's most iconic figures, in April 1957 at a significant moment in her life and just two years before her death at the age of 44. Beautifully captured through the lens of photographer Jerry Dantzic, the 375 running foot exhibition provides a rare glimpse into Billie Holiday's public and private life through 65 pigment prints with labels, curated panels, ephemera, projected video, and vinyl excerpts from the work of renowned writer and author, Zadie Smith. Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill: Photographs by Jerry Dantzic is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in cooperation with the Jerry Dantzic.
