Well lite and laid out, but I'd thought there'd be more!

No matter how much one tries to undo or deconstruct White European power systems, they remain in place. Even in riffing on them, they're only place of display remains inside their system

this show was absolutely amazing. perhaps it's too much information for some folks to take in at one time, but for those of us who do deal with issues of race and class daily, these images resonate very clearly. i love the theatricality of his work and am excited (to say the least) to see more. very very well done.

Beautiful work, in regards to the costumes and their inherent social metaphors. I think both films were lacking in technical expertise which made the costume elements suffer. I would have liked to see the female costume pieces as part of the exhibit, as the men's are stunning situated around the table as and exhibition centerpiece.

We are here for Mother Daughter Artstar Day and we are enthralled as the exhibit brings up topics which are relevant to our daily lives.
