#southernaccent finale. A seismic artistic odyssey into bowels of U.S.A.—passed rotting #strangefruit ,fragrant magnolia blossoms, hunters hunting, country drawls, #secondlineparade ,racial tropes, fascism, pink sunsets, white supremacy, fireflies, kudzu, shrimp and grits, #hurricanekatrina , #lesbians ,islands populated with universalists in a sea of tribal rubes committed to nationalistic, capitalistic, militaristic, ethnocentric and pedantic chaos; they, who are still too foolish and ignorant to know they are only smiting their own faces; bbq’d humans and pigs, which are which no one really knows any longer @speedartmuseum @catherineopie #andywarhol#dollyparton#williebirch#deborahgrant @dg_bourgeois @kara_walker_official #8possiblebeginningsor:thecreationAfrican-America (a Moving Picture) #karawalker
As suspected and to be expected ....Hearing real stories of what happened in #Katrina from New Orlean’s natives is vastly different from what main stream media reported. 12 years later driving through the #9thward looking at the shotgun houses that remain made me really emotional. We learned .....Some houses we passed through were just empty lots of rubble, because citizens did not have the money to rebuild. After the hurricane hit, People were trapped in the attics & had to cut through to the roof. Most of the elderly did not survive & died from heat exhaustion and dehydration. The symbols on the side of the houses were spray painted to indicate if there were survivors, pets, if there was a body count, and or if the house was able to be reentered.
