Aruna D’Souza & Laura Raicovich in Conversation for ARTnews

Sp18 Accord Portrait

Aruna D'Souza and former Queens Museum director Laura Raicovich had a conversation for the Spring 2018 issue of ARTnews.

"Writing my book was about coming to terms with my own past ways of thinking, or not thinking—and atoning for my past blindness by now paying attention. That is something we all have to do in this moment. Anyone who is not black, even if brown like I am, we’ve all benefited from systems and values associated with anti-blackness. We all have to do it, and institutions have to do it in a way that’s honest and public."
