Absolutely. Young artists have no sense of history. Something else is happening right now with younger artists and their sense of history. It’s as if what preceded them is of no value or never really happened. I’m always amazed when I talk to women artists in college who have no interest in feminist art. There seems to be this frightening, alarming return to the modernist notion of the self-contained, genius originator. Young artists in particular don’t want to acknowledge antecedents. I’m not really interested in recuperating history and I’m certainly not interested in romantic nostalgia for the past, but I’m very aware of the history of art that preceded me. Every artist works through history. I mean, painters are always painting against the history of painting.

Important. You’re not beholden to the past, but you have to know the rules to break them / don’t waste time reinventing the wheel

it’s really very fortunate that “snikt” is more than four letters, because otherwise I probably would’ve had it tattooed on my knuckles years ago.

When choosing to be a sexy Indian princess this year for halloween please remember that 1 in 3 native women will be raped in their lifetime (mostly by non-native men) and remember by doing so you’re contributing to the harmful stereotype and sexualization of native women. Halloween is fun. You don’t have to be a racist piece of shit.

Munira Abukar, Ward 2 Candidate, Finds Racist Messages On Campaign Signs

"Go back home," read the racist remark left on Munira Abukar’s campaign sign.

The 22-year-old Somali-Canadian is running for city councillor in Toronto’s Ward 2, Etobicoke North – the riding Doug Ford currently holds, and Rob Ford is hoping to reclaim.

Abukar tweeted photos of the comments on Twitter Saturday, saying she’s been told there are more defaced signs out there.

Following the tweet, Toronto residents began reaching out to Abukar, expressing disgust and showing support using the hashtag #IStandWithMunira.

Abukar was angry and upset at the vandalism at first, she told CBC News, but now realizes the importance of staying positive.

"It’s a matter of taking anger and applying it positively and saying ‘I don’t give in to hate. I don’t give in to coercion and bullying.’"

Toronto is set to elect a new mayor and council on Oct. 27.

Being a black muslim woman in a predominantly white society is exhausting. For me, being a Somali woman and wearing the hijab is an adversity I am willing to manage, because I refuse to wear my identity as a shameful nametag; I will wear my identity as a crown.

Paranormal investigations can often be intrusive to the dead. Especially when they are having sexy time.
