We are grateful to artist Kevin Beasley for including our dialogue on the “Perspectives” page for his current sound and sculpture exhibition at the Whitney Museum, “A view of the landscape,” open through March 10, 2019. The exhibition pursues the legacy of the South and the moment that cotton was King. (Update 10.21.20: Sadly, continent magazine has come to an end, but the dialogue is archived here with video and audio links intact. You can also download the PDF: Napolin Rosenfeld Politics of the Musical Situation.)
