Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill: Photographs by Jerry Dantzic is an intimate and compelling photographic portrait of Billie Holiday, the consummate jazz and blues singer and one of 20th century music’s most iconic figures. The photographs were taken 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 exhibition provides a rare glimpse into Billie Holiday’s public and private life through pigment prints with labels, curated panels, ephemera, projected video, and vinyl excerpts from the work of renowned writer and author, Zadie Smith.
