I truely love the beach.
The place where the water meets the sand. That ebb and flow, the horizon line, the infinitude of shades of blue and grey, and white.
The light, though, is everything.

#repost from @jordanmcasteel

This morning I experienced the most extreme whiplash one could feel. Just yesterday, I woke up to a review of my exhibition temporarily shuttered at the @newmuseum written by @jilnotjill for the @nytimes a I felt immense joy for her thoughtful engagement of the WORK and its historical relationship. It wasnat just about me, my story, or the story of my people a it was about the journey of the practice and itas resonance here and now. aaa Less than 24 hours later, I wake up to a text from my mother frantic to let me know that my perpetual fears have been publicly realized. In the @nytimes Thursday briefing that floods the inboxes of millions of people a My peer, collaborator, friend, and fellow painter @asherald and I have been made interchangeable as two powerful black women painters. aaa This casual amistakea is just the underbelly of institutional battles that are an unfortunate and frustrating constant. I often feel I am yelling into a void, pushing for me and the people I love to be truly heard, seen, and given a real seat at the table...And yet this...this reminds me that the mountain is incredibly steep and god Iam tired.

we asked artists if they would be open for virtual studio visits with @moca ..... marina wanted to bring us backstage to her opera production in munich, but of course social distancing understandably stopped the production..... marina made this little video to share instead - thank you #marinaabramovic

Thank you, @berniesanders - for your leadership, mentorship, and example.
.
Thank you for fighting for all of us from the very beginning, and throughout your entire life.
.
Thank you for fighting the hard, lonely fights in true devotion to a peopleas movement in the United States.
.
Thank you for inspiring me to run for office. You made this broke girl from the Bronx believe that a grassroots movement was possible and winnable, and that everyday, working people are powerful enough to overcome the entrenched interests of corrupted power and systems.
.
You have shown us that victory is ours for the organizing, even if not always guaranteed. Thank you for demonstrating that it IS possible to serve authentically, without compromising our values or integrity, and with the ferocious urgency and paradigm-challenging leadership that this moment demands.
.
Thank you for it all. We love you. #NotMeUs

Happy Birthdayto the one and only Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, who would have been 133 years old today. The master of modernism was born in 1886. Today, we thank him for saying 'Less is more' and celebrate his prolific career. #birthday #miesvanderrohe #lessismore #architecture #modenism #onthisday #bauhaus

I think i walked by this public sculpture a zillion times as it stands smack in the center of my small town square. It took a walk on a quiet Corona day, with hardly a soul in sight in mid-day--to stop, look up and walk around this three dimensional sculpture.

I don't know, this question mark form in a bird's cage atop a tree trunk makes me wonder about this moment in time and my discovery of it... @ ΧœΧ™ΧΧŸ Χ§Χ™Χ“Χ‘
