last year, a week before thanksgiving, i found this picture on larkin street. theres so much i want to know… who are these people? what are there relations to each other? what does thanksgiving mean to them as a group and individually? do they like pie? where are they all from? did they grow up with thanksgiving traditions? is the person on the right a guy with really rad hair? what year was this photo taken? hence i still have this photo. today i pass it on to the streets once again for another passerby to reflect and enjoy.
In the 1960s, photographer Duane Michals wandered the streets of New York City during early Sunday morning hours in order to capture rare, quiet moments while the metropolis was still asleep.
Since their inception in 1984 the Guerrilla Girls have been working to expose sexual and racial discrimination in the art world, particularly in New York, and in the wider cultural arena. The group’s members protect their identities by wearing gorilla masks in public and by assuming pseudonyms taken from such deceased famous female figures as the writer Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) and the artist Frida Kahlo (1907-54). They formed in response to the International Survey of Painting and Sculpture held in 1984 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The exhibition included the work of 169 artists, less than 10% of whom were women.
