NYC streetstyle

i was kinda of trigger happy this weekend @ PS.1

btw.. it’s a must to check out the “that was then….this is now” exhibit going on there. it stood out the most to me from the other exhibits.

This group exhibition is inspired by the artistic and socio-political climate of the late 1960s, and features artists united by the desire to mobilize art as a means of change. Divided into three iconographic themes—Flags, Weapons, and Dreams—That Was Then…This Is Now places these representations as central to artists’ collective aspiration towards progress.

The show was separated between flags, weapons, and dreams, but my favorite room was the flag room (though the explosion of weapons a few rooms down was great too), if just for the fact it had work from Barbara Kruger and David Hammons.
