Manthia Diawara introduced me to Mireille, the daughter of Frantz Fanon at the debut of his 2008 film, Maison Tropicale in Dakar. More recently, I noticed Tilda Swinton in a Joan Jonas video work at the Pinacoteca annex. I realize I've been snooping around the art world for a couple decades now, and lately wonder what it adds up to.
