SAMUEL FOSSO 'UNFINISHED CONVERSATIONS: NEW WORK FROM THE COLLECTION' MOMA GROUP EXHIBITION REVIEWED IN THE NY TIMES

'MoMa has a history of excluding not only black artists but also women. (...) “Unfinished Conversations” is neither a corrective nor a direct response to this history and reputation, but the exhibition makes strides. It includes a great deal of work by artists of varying racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds, and avoids trumpeting the familiar self-congratulatory liberal politics—a tuneless, corporatized gospel of diversity. Instead, the curators have managed to emphasize the work itself over the identities of the artists and, crucially, without using this approach as a justification for excluding work by women and artists of color.'
