How have you moved your art making forward this week? Below are several things I think worth sharing about progressive art- and culture-making. Call this list Curated Reading in Progressive Art and Culture.
- Comedian Raneir Pollard wants to see more gay assassins in movies. He proceeds to show us how they will get the job done.
- Jean-Michel Basquiat’s eclectic musical tastes. “Bowie, Back and Bebop: How Music Powered Basquiat” discusses the Barbican’s exhibit about Basquiat’s relationship to music. Jazz loomed large in Basquiat’s creative pantheon. Music drives much of my creative process. How about you?
- From McSweeney’s. “List: If People Talked About Other Things the Way They Talk About Gender Identity.”
