Talkin' 'bout Our Conversation
I am not on Facebook, but some of my friends are, and they know I like it when they share with me its "pages".
This morning I awoke to an email from Raymond Boisjoly who sent me 25 pages of a conversation that began late-afternoon yesterday and continued into the evening. It is one of the more candid conversations I have read on art, identity, appropriation, intentionality and criticism.
Could this conversation have happened if it was put together for a symposium or conference? I am not sure. Why this conversation succeeded, where so many like it have failed, has everything to do with the triumph of Love over one of its more reified forms -- Respect.
Haw'aa Beaucoup, Ray Ray!
