What inspires you? ARTFORUM, ARTnews or Modern Painter?

Lately, I have been asking myself, which of these art journals should I invest my money in a monthly  script? I find that when I read ARTFORUM I am excited to see that artists all over the world are invested in their practice in ways i have yet to realize in mine. Damn, do I need to see that when I am working on my stuff?! When I look at Modern Painters and I'm proud.. it's just a matter of time before others (I mean collectors, museum directors, galleries, and curators) will see my work and see that I am in dialogue with what peers are doing.  It's all about the language, bro and I am singing in my practice. Honestly, these periodicals inspire me it different ways so, maybe I should empty out my penny jar and get all three because we have to invest in our practice.

It’s funny how one part of my life has come full circle since my studio visit with the Studio Museum in Harlem. In 2006 I travelled to SMH to speak with Lowery Stokes Sims, then their executive director, and left with the feeling that much more work and scholarship needed to be done.  I met with SMH’s newest associate curator Connie Choi and assistant curator Hallie Ringle and felt good about it. Of course there is always work to do, but I feel much closer. Twins (2017) is now part of their permanent collection! Thelma Golden before Twins Nobody’s Darling: Women and Representation at UT Austin’s Christian-Green gallery continues over the course of this summer and concludes on August 4, 2017. As I’ve said, I’m thrilled to have support in Austin and am as happy to see varying interest across the US. I will participate in the 2017 Art on the Vine atMart…
