With Lauren Haynes @loh33, Curator of Contemporary Art at Crystal Bridges Museum reflecting on Romare Bearden’s words. Which is the best, most succinct answer to the question I have been asked the most for the past three decades. “Black art is the art that black artists do” Loved being back at Crystal Bridges again to see Soul of A Nation before it closes there. And to see @loh33 beautifully doing her thing ! #SMH4ever SoulOfANation @zoe.whitley @markgodfrey1973

I was thrilled to see Jordan’s @jordanmcasteel “Jared” on view at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in their new fantastic collection installation when I was there again on Friday. And this portrait of the current Studio Museum in the background makes me very nostalgic. “Jared” 2016 detail. @jordanmcasteel @crystalbridgesmuseum @studiomuseum #JordanCasteel

Remembering ✨Peggy Cooper Cafritz (1947-2018))✨ Today at her Duke Ellington School of the Arts. #PeggyCooperCafritz

At the celebration of Peggy Cooper Cafritz’ (1947-2018) extraordinary life today. On her birthday. At The Duke Ellington School of the Arts. An enduring testament to Peggy’s brilliant and beautiful vision. #PeggyCooperCafritz.

✨🙏🏾Remembering the incomparable Cecil Taylor (1929-2018) . This was taken at the opening preview of the Whitney Museum in April 2015. At that moment, he was walking thorough the galleries and spoke passionately about his impressions of all on view. A moment of verbal virtuosity. I was in awe of him. In this moment and always. While the official photographer was lurking behind , I am grateful then and now to Sandra Jackson-Dumont @sandrajacksondumon for taking this photo. As @glennligon said in his beautiful post #PeakBlackness #CecilTaylor #RIP

✨Adrian Piper✨ I have so much to say about the incredible Adrian Piper retrospective “A Synthesis
of Intuitions, 1965–2016” opened last at the Museum of Modern Art so take this as a warning that I will be posting about and talking about this exhibition constantly. But for now just this! One of the last moments in the exhibition. I could look at this forever. “Adrian Moves To Berlin” 2007 🙏🏾
