Jason Moran

“Jason Moran” catalog. With some beautiful words by @aliciahallmoran , Adrienne Edwards, Okwui Enwezor, @glennligon , George Lewis and Danielle Jackson @virtuosa12 . Beautifully and thoughtfully designed by @hassanrahim and the @walkerartcenter . And thank you Adrian Piper - “Artists Ought to be Writing, about what they do and what kinds of procedures they go through to realize a work... what their presuppositions in making the work are...and related things. If artists intentions and ideas were more accessible to the general public, I think it might BREAK DOWN some of the barriers of misunderstanding between the the art world and artists and the general public. I think it would become clear the extent to which artists are just as much a product of their society as anyone else with any other kinds of vocation”- AP on Mythic Being. catalog available in October. @luhringaugustine , exhibition opens at @icaboston Sept.25.

WW1 flag - referencing The Harlem Rattlers aka The Harlem Hellfighters - all in prep for my @1418now @kennedycenter commission at @barbicancentre in honor of James Reese Europe who took jazz to Europe during a war that he did not start. The bravery of these citizens is far beyond. What will you die for? What will you stand for? @369experience #jamesreeseeurope #harlemhellfighters #harlemrattlers #harlem #ww1 #369thinfantry @steinwayandsons

“Wait, nah, I’m from Houston, y’all don’t know nothin’ about no barbecue.” Ahhhhh @insecurehbo and @issarae nailing how we Houston folk think. We are often proved wrong but it still won’t prevent us from saying shit like this. #houston
