The Museum of Modern Art has announced that Brent Hayes Edwards will be part of of the Museum's inaugural cohort of Ford Foundation Scholars in Residence. The program invites three acclaimed and inspiring thinkers to join the Museum for a one-year term to pursue independent research that contributes to new understandings of modern and contemporary art. 

In addition to conducting independent research, Edwards—along with fellow scholars Joan Kee and Robin Coste Lewis—will participate in internal curatorial conversations that set the course for the Museum’s collection presentation, exhibitions, acquisitions, and programming.

The three Ford Foundation Scholars in Residence range in disciplines; each is highly respected as a thought leader and brings a distinctive perspective to the Museum. They were chosen by a review committee with external and internal members, including Elizabeth Alexander, Homi Bhabha, Huey Copeland, Leah Dickerman, Michelle Kuo, and Martino Stierli.
