Sample text

I was projecting my agenda on the community and the kids. " When that curator said that those first works were "real," what she was actually expressing is that the qualities of those early paintings-their crudeness, the brilliant colors, the surreal and negative and despairing imagery-corresponded with her notions-as an outsider-of what art produced in the South Bronx must look like. Once again the South Bronx is considered incapable of creating beauty. The community's fame comes from being a national pariah.

Like the music ofJohn Cage, we are working with a structure that, in a way, cannot fail as a work of art. It's a democratic form and method-much like quiltmaking. In these works the collaborative process is perhaps most apparent. But then we make works that cover the tracks of their making-The Whiteness of the Whale on Melville's Moby Dick, the "Black Beauty" and "Metamorphosis" paintings, the new "Pinocchio" sculptures or From the Earth to the Moon after Jules Verne. " Maybe our big challenge for our second decade is to integrate these two styles of work to create a third, deeper approach to collaboration-something more like a Baptist choir.

She becomes a living model, a walking reminder, of the community's propensity towards sin. This is very similar to how the United States as a whole treats the South Bronx. Our neighborhood is a symbol for urban decay. The South Bronx is allowed to exist, especially for the media, but only as a model for suffering and decrepitude. Why? Because, like the crowds who scorned Hester, watching the violence of the Bronx on TV or in the papers makes everyone outside of the area feel good, safe, and secure in their places, in their values.
