In Conversation: Fred Moten and Legacy Russell

On the occasion of the exhibition ‘Jack Whitten. I AM THE OBJECT,’ the gallery hosted a digital discussion focused on the work of the renowned artist Jack Whitten (1939 – 2018) with Fred Moten, cultural theorist, poet and scholar and Legacy Russell, associate curator of exhibitions at The Studio Museum in Harlem and author of ‘Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto.’ Moten and Russell discussed Whitten’s ‘Notes from the Woodshed,’ his collection of studio writings, and Whitten’s negotiation of Black matter, Black abstraction, objecthood and subjecthood, and improvisation. The conversation drew on ways in which—to borrow Whitten’s words from his final log entry in 2017—‘art is our compass to the cosmos.’
