“Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection”

Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection opens today in our 6th floor galleries. Works by more than a dozen artists from around the world, including Kara Walker, Iman Issa, Samuel Foss, and Wolfgang Tillmans explore intertwining themes of social protest, the effect of history on the formation of identity, and how art juxtaposes fact and fiction. The exhibition title is inspired by John Akomfrah’s three-channel video installation shown here, which chronicles the life and work of the cultural theorist Stuart Hall and is on view in the final gallery of the exhibition.

Oh anon,,, you spoil me,,,


Aight, I know this is a long video, but if you have some time to kill sometime soon, I reeeaaaalllllyyy recommend watching this. 

It’s Jon Favreau (Elf, The Jungle Book) interviewing an insanely talented panel consisting of Lin-Manuel Miranda, Donald Glover, Issa Rae, and Damien Chazelle about the current state of creativity, media and art. There’s a fantastic amount of stuff to learn in the interview. Hoping you guys give it a chance.

“I bet it’s something from Pippin” they say in anticipation, eyes wide as money is passed around the front rows of a mostly empty auditorium.
