Curated by Alison Weaver, the Suzanne Deal Booth Executive Director, the exhibition is made possible by the Moody Center for the Arts Founders Circle with additional support from the Elizabeth Lee Moody Excellence Fund for the Arts and the Texas Commission on the Arts.

Jones, Idris Khan, Christine Sun Kim, Jason Moran, Sarah Morris, Trevor Paglen, Anri Sala, and Naama Tsabar. New work was created for the show by Jamal Cyrus, Spencer Finch, and Jorinde Voigt. A series of programs activated the space and artworks in the exhibition.

The Spring 2022 season also included the second Moody Wall Project installation featuring the work of Reginald Adams.
