Grace Jones

The supermodel & singer talks legacy with Melena Ryzik

Iconic singer, songwriter and supermodel Grace Jones in conversation with culture reporter Melena Ryzik of The New York Times

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to spend an evening with iconic singer, songwriter and supermodel Grace Jones — who headlined the TimesTalks Festival with a special conversation moderated by culture reporter Melena Ryzik of The New York Times.

Sophie Fiennes’s documentary “Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami” weaves together the layers of Grace Jones’s public and private life, as she moves effortlessly between different facets. Taking us home to Jamaica and behind-the-scenes at shows all around the world, the film reveals Jones as lover, daughter, mother and businesswoman. But the stage is the fixed point to which the film returns, with eye-popping performances in the documentary of “Slave to the Rhythm,” “Pull Up to the Bumper,” “Love Is the Drug” and more.

This event was part of the 20th Anniversary TimesTalks Festival weekend, from April 13–15, 2018. Tickets include one complimentary drink at the TimesTalks Festival cocktail reception following the event.
