mofotos asked:

Why are you featuring Joe Scanlan's Donelle Woolford project? You do understand that Joe Scanlan is a fifty-something year old white male art professor/critic/artist who created a fictional black female artist named Donelle Woolford as an exploitative way of displaying his own work right?

Not sure what you’re referencing but we’d like to take this moment to highlight Coco Fusco’s brilliant read of the Woolford project here

Don’t make assumptions about what we know and don’t know. Thanks for following!

Update to the whole Biennial/Donelle Woolford/Joe Scanlan affair: Joe Scanlan was recently revealed to be a fictitious creation by the artist Ryan Wong.

This certainly makes the debate more interesting (convoluted? scary?).
