This talk gave me an opportunity to talk about my art practice and the Yamaguchi Institute in relationship to a work in the museum's permanent collection.
The Van Abbe, in Eindhoven Netherlands recently hosted the Black Monks of Mississippi in an exhibition called the Heartland. The show, up through February looks at Contemporary artists and art practices that developed along the Mississippi. With several conversations, I realized that that river means very different things to different people. The Museum hosting the first formal performance of the Black Monks.

Photographer and mentor to so many, Dawoud has an uncanny way of calling it like it is in the most thoughtful of ways. He moves through Museum and gallery spaces with an alacrity rarely seen and is a great artist to live vicariously through. If you are fortunate enough to catch a Dawoud Bey fritatta on Sunday morning, you'll know your place in heaven is secured.
