A film by Maxine Lyle and Jordan Crawford

  • Made at MASS MoCA, MASS MoCA From Home


A response to the racial violence and police brutality that plagued much of 2020, Done was written by MASS MoCA artist-in-residence Maxine Lyle and interpreted and performed by Jordan Crawford. With the black community under siege at the hands of law enforcement and with thousands of African Americans disproportionately dying due to a mismanaged pandemic, Done is an uncompromising declaration of the hard truths this country was built on and a defiant battle cry for the future that will be.
