The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011) dir.Göran Olsson
“This whole, kind of, falling in love with black things for a short period of time is essentially racist. It still is hypothesized on a great sense of separateness and a sense of treating black activities as a kind of curiosity; either benign or threatening, one or the other. When it’s threatening, ‘Oh my god, they’re going to riot or something’. And if it’s benign, ‘Let’s let them paint or draw or sing or dance, whatever they want to do. Until we, the white community, get tired of it’ and that whole structure, is essentially racist.”

180 CANVASES

From 180 Canvases’ Behance page:

"180 Canvases is a site specific installation designed to fill the space of Arrow Factory gallery in JianChang Hutong, Beijing. Arrow Factory is a 15 m² independently run alternative art space founded by artists Rania Ho and Wang Wei, which occupies a former vegetable stand and which is now hosting exhibitions on a monthly base. We played with the original concept of the space, a shop-like show window facing the hutong lane, inserting an element of surprise to catch attention of passing-by viewers. The contrast of a colourful Wunderkammer featuring 180 canvases painted by hand strikes with the grey colour of surrounding walls, bringing some reminder to local tradition of chinese colourful paper cutting and the common habit of people to hang up wires on which they put clothes to dry on the public lanes."

The installation is part of Instant Hutong’s pursuit of “Theory of Moments,” a research project that investigates undefined, “abandoned or under-used spaces in downtown Beijing.” The end turns flat, colored canvases into a a stunning rainbow lattice:

Enjoy more of 180 Canvases, and check out more work by the artists on the Instant Hutong website.

” Headlights ”

Steven Shaheen

Stephen Shaheen is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work explores the porous borders between art, design and architecture. His work spans both manual and digital processes, and employs materials as diverse as repurposed found objects, marble, and recycled denim fiber.

Shaheen trained in Italy as a sculptor and earned his MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2005. His projects include large, community-driven pieces such as a 100-ton marble and granite installation, Memoria (2002), and his Metrobench (2011), created from 5,000 NYC Metrocards. Shaheen is the recipient of a Ludwig Vogelstein grant, the Italian Cultural Institute/La Fortuna Foundation grant, and a 2009-2010 Residency at the Digital Stone Project. His indoor and outdoor installations are in public and private collections in the United States and Europe.

-@thesoulasylum: Black women are not a gay mans accessory to wear.


And I’d say the flip side of this is that gay men are not extant for the sole purpose of the social actualization of Black women’s, or any woman’s, womanhood.
