Among Others: Blackness at MoMa

This expansive collection of essays on nearly 200 works in the collection of the Museum of Moden Art is the first substantial exploration of Moma's uneven historical relationships with black artists, black audiences and the broader subject of racial blackness. By addressing these subjects through the consideration of works produced either by black artists or in response to race-related subjects, Among Others confronts two kinds of truth: one plainly factual and informative, the other moral. It is equal parts historical investigation and truth-telling about the Museum's role in the history of the cultural politics of race.
