Mostly about art, but with some ethnic slurs, visual puns, and symbolic flags.

In the November 2nd New Yorker a piece “A Tale of Two Cities: The Old Guard meets a new crop in “Greater New York.”” by Andrea K. Scott, about the current show at MOMA PS1. Illustrated by David Hammons’s “African-American Flag”, which stands in the courtyard at the entrance to the museum:


A version of the U.S. flag done in the three colors of the Pan-African flag: red, black, and green instead of red, whte, and blue.
