This Sunday, I took a trip to the Black Market (an arts market, not that market) in Cambridge, MA brought to life by Boston Hassle. Read on for some of my favorite modern girl artists and sellers to keep an eye on!
“Curly Sue Found Dead” (2016) reworks the male-dominated narrative of organized crime in America by creating the story of one woman: Susanna Crespo a.k.a Curly Sue. She thrives in 1980s Miami, the height of cocaine trafficking and the Miami Drug Wars. While exploring the glamorization of “the gangster” through pop culture, the narrative branding of props and evidence brings this character to life.
In this photo series, Megan Magdalena Bourne brings us clowns, Jeffrey Campbell, and a ton of glam. Because fuck gender, but yay clowns!
