Theaster Gates discusses how his interactive installation On Black Foundations poses a question about the “nature of race and class in the United States”. Gates describes the importance of this work in bringing a wholly different audience into the gallery space and of highlighting the profile of Fashion Fair, the first and largest supplier of cosmetics made specifically for a black consumer.
