A roundtable discussion with African-American artists about working in Houston

McGee [to Malone] Let me ask you a question. What do you think this roundtable is going to do?

Malone First of all, I hope it gives the artists the opportunity to speak, so that we can hear both different and similar ideas. And from there, maybe we could deal with some of these other things. We can address in our own separate ways some of these misconceptions. This is the opportunity to speak and move on.

Samples It's not just to have this in print, but to open up serious dialogue and conversation. This is our form of networking, other than going to people's exhibitions, a form of visual support. But there's not even a breath of this kind of discussion going on in that kind of atmosphere. And we have to be more inclusive of other people in our community -- not just painters and sculptors, but writers, curators, educators. They should all be in this room and hearing this. But if you're in this space and even if you did hear it, then you got a sense of something going on, the hope of something that you can make some changes. I hope this encourages other people to initiate the same sort of dialogue.
