Writing In The Time Of Endless Pandemic Distraction

Our brains, working at home: “The kitchen is a mess. How can I concentrate when I know that two rooms over, the kitchen is a mess? The sink is filled with plates and glasses that couldn’t fit into the dishwasher the night before, so now we have a lag in the dishwashing. There is no end to the dishwashing. There is no tabula rasa. It doesn’t help that the pans all have special requirements, they need so much individualized care they might as well be hothouse orchids.” – LitHub

Learning From A Vanished Mural Of Racial Violence

John Wilson’s student mural The Incident made such an impression on David Siquieros that the famous muralist and head of Mexico’s Department for the Protection and Restoration of Murals requested it be preserved. It was, for a few years. Now, “with each passing day, it gains newfound relevance and newfound pain — its act of reckoning is far from done.” – Hyperallergic

The Future Of Art: Human Scale

It doesn’t seem clear what will happen until there’s a vaccine, but perhaps – “Museums will reopen, and galleries can stop pretending their online viewing rooms are actual shows. Exhibitions may be fewer, run longer, borrow less from abroad. Collections will be swapped, tours will be wider, perhaps there will be more slow-looking shows like the Courtauld’s Manetin 2004, which concentrated so deeply on one pair of paintings.” – The Observer (UK)

As Juniper Serra Statue Goes Down, Activists Want The Site To Tell A More Truthful History

For one thing, it’s really time to change the name of “Father Serra Park” in Los Angeles. But taking down the statues to the architect of the mission system, which brutalized thousands of Native adults and children, is a first step. And “organizers of the action (a loose group of unnamed artists and activists) say they see the toppling as a beginning, not an end.” – Los Angeles Times

The First Black British Author To Reach Number One On The Bestseller Lists Says It’s All Too Bittersweet

Reni Eddo-Lodge’s Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race was a sensation when she first published it, but it took a lot of police brutality for her book to top the lists. She notes, “To know there was a surge of people searching out anti-racism books after seeing what was essentially a film of somebody being murdered, I can’t uncouple those two things.” – The Observer (UK)

The Music Of The Revolutions

Music that unites protestors is not new, and it wasn’t new in the 1960s either. “Music at protests reminds dissenters of their humanity, even when the powers-that-be attempt to strip away their personhood. It gives strength. It takes the mind away from a place of fear and pain, and focuses the body to resist. And at times, the music is the only way the message can be shared.” – OPB (Portland)

It Took Richard Pryor To Change How Comedy Sees The Police

Comedy culture before Pryor, that is, white comedy culture, depicted copys “as clownish bullies, and their violence, divorced from any racial context, played as a kind of shtick. When they swung their clubs, you never really felt the blow.” Then Pryor came along. – The New York Times

Some California Museums Are, Cautiously, Reopening

But the smaller museums may not be interested in risking everything. The Underground Museum, “in L.A.’s Arlington Heights neighborhood, sounded a voice of caution about a pandemic that has hit Black and Latino populations disproportionately hard: ‘We are prioritizing the care of our community over calls to restart our economy. … Please stay safe, and if you can, stay home.'” – Los Angeles Times
