When I was a grad student in art history at Columbia in the 80s, these two Asian American outliers offered an alternative to the whiteness of the canon as taught in the classroom. I still adore them both. 💫💫 #martinwong #tsengkwongchi #artistsofcolor

Marta Moreno Vega, founder of the Caribbean Cultural Center, with her 1973 self portrait at tonight’s opening of “Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960 - 1985, a spectacular ground breaking exhibition. ✨✨✨ @catherinejanetmorris @chermosa @cornelia.butler @fajardohill @andreagiunta2017 @brooklynmuseum #radicalwomenbkm #martamorenovega

So proud to be in the company of friends Bing Lee, a founder of the advocacy group, Godzilla: Asian American Art Network, and Mel Chin, whose brilliant show “All Over the Place” opened this afternoon at the Queens Museum. 🌟🌟 @mel.chin @goldfedora @queensmuseum #melchin #binglee #queensmuseum

Mike Pence? Nope. “The American Golfer,” 1940, by Grant Wood in the aptly titled show “American Gothic and Other Fables.” One of the strange and provocative works in this fascinating show. #GrantWood #whitneymuseum @whitneymuseum

Sensational cast (Angela Bassett, Common, Mark Bamuthi Joseph) of “Between the World and Me” pays tribute to Jason Moran and his music, another significant player in this memorable performance of Ta-Nehisi Coates book. 🔥🔥🔥 @apollotheater #tanehisicoates #betweentheworldandme #apollotheater #jasonmoran

You never know what you’re going to find in a basement. Here Lavar Monroe and Rodrigo Valenzuela team up to create this fierce installation, part of “Disobedience,” their two person exhibition at #JenkinsJohnsonProject, a great addition to the Brooklyn gallery scene. @jenkinsjohnsongallery #lavarmunroe #rodrigovalenzuela #basements #brooklynart
