Linda Goode Bryant writes:

“For centuries, the infrastructure that props up today’s global production and market for art has been based on a business model that adheres to the fundamental principles and values of material gain and worth. Despite changes in the ways cultures and art have evolved during that same period, this infrastructure has essentially remained the same. What if a different type of infrastructure were to be envisioned?

Watch Linda Goode Bryant, Artistic Director for RAW Académie at ICA, introduce her vision for the session in Philadelphia and her work towards creating a different arts infrastructure.

Joining her in conversation are Marie Hélène Pereira and Dulcie Abrahams Altass of RAW Material Company, Marielle Ingram, and Alex Klein, ICA’s Dorothy and Stephen R. Weber (CHE ’60) Curator, to reflect on their multi-year dialogue and resulting institutional collaboration.
