Join a live walkthrough of Hugh Hayden's debut London show, American Food, in conversation with Elvira Dyangani Ose, Director of The Showroom on Wednesday 8 July at 4pm BST / 11am EST.


The artist will conduct a tour of his show, now open in London by appointment, with reference to its themes of African identity and art history, communal or performative eating and the social values of cooking, as well as relating it to the current political upheaval in the US and beyond. He will also talk in depth about the Solomon B. Hayden Fellowship, a new partnership and student fund at Columbia University, named after his late father. Audience participants will be able to pose questions to Hugh and Elvira in real time, using the online chat facility or in person if they prefer.
