Become a part of the Black New Haven Archive. In a one-hour session at Artspace New Haven over refreshments and conversation, Yale University Art Gallery Happy and Bob Doran Artist-in-Residence, Allison Minto, will work with New Haveners of the Black diaspora to photograph family portraits. Whether your family is blood-related or chosen, Minto’s idea of family is open to exploring how this is defined to you. In exchange for your participation, families will receive a digital copy of the portraits and be included in a public exhibition that celebrates Black New Haven families.

Black New Haven Archive is presented by Artspace New Haven and the Yale University Art Gallery 2021–2022 Happy and Bob Doran Artist in Residence, Allison Minto. These photography sessions are a part of the programming series for the group exhibition Footnotes and other embedded stories, on view April 30–June 25, 2022, at Artspace New Haven.
