“You are always having to go back to the beginning because the drag of resistance is so great, things have to be repeated over and over and over again. They’re not proven, transmitted as truth once and for all. Because power has the infinite capacity to resist, you find yourself making the same arguments over and over and over. You’re in this loop. I think that’s where many black artists are now. We’re in this repetition loop. How to get out of it is the question. We still don’t seem to be saying much that hasn’t been said before by other black artists. Is what we say “sticking” better than before? That’s harder to see.”

Read the latest in our #MOCAIntroducing series, a conversation between Lorraine O’Grady and Juliana Huxtable.

“Every Thursday I get to be in a room with 17 other teenagers who are just as passionate about art as I am.”

Education is a huge part of what we do at MOCA. A few months ago we published a report in collaboration with The Whitney, Walker Art Center, and CMA Houston on the long-term effects of teen programs in art museums.
