Jared Linge, owner and director of High Noon Gallery located in the Lower East Side, brings to fore strategies of resistance developed in the context to the pandemic. Among several topics covered in the interview, including the pressures and difficulties of the art economy, Linge discussed with us his online exhibitions, Shelter/Place and Friends With Benefits, which ran during shutdown, and in which 30% of total gallery commission went to benefit organizations that stand in solidarity with Black lives and against police brutality: COVID Bailout NYC, Color of Change, The Okra Project, and the Ali Forney Center to benefit the LGBTQ community.
