This museum tab is the first in a series begun at the 2015 public opening of the new Whitney. It references Daniel Martinez’s tab made for the 1993 Whitney Biennial that read, “I CAN’T IMAGINE EVER WANTING TO BE WHITE.” I wanted to emphasize that there is nothing separating us except our own minds. I am not saying that I understand what it is like to be black. Instead, I want to imagine how we can connect rather than stay separate, how we can cross identity boundaries that keep us divided.
