Blackness Will Not Be Contained, Veronica Esposito Writes About American Artist’s “Mother of All Demos III”

“The subdued blackness of the Apple II computer terminal—which has slowly given way to white-dominated monitors—is juxtaposed with the seeping, gooey asphalt, which seems to suggest that Blackness will not so easily be contained.”
– Writer Veronica Esposito, on American Artist’s Mother of All Demos III (2022), featured in the forthcoming group exhibition “Refigured” at the Whitney. The piece invokes Douglas Engelbard’s epochal 1968 presentation and has “the feel of an archetypical, Promethean moment when things changed forever.”
