Catalogue Note

“When you talk about the absence of black figure representation in the history of art [...] you can talk about it as an exclusion, in which case there’s a kind of indictment of history for failing to be responsible for something it should have been. I don’t have that kind of mission. I don’t have that indictment. My interest in being a part of it is being an expansion of it, not a critique of it.” Kerry James Marshall
