From Chinatown Art Brigade: Hyperallergic: Artist Omer Fast Compares Protesters to Alt-Right

Chinatown Art Brigade

I’m still on this from Fast’s statement: “The actual gallery is being used as an immigrant surrogate: a transplant that tries to affect an appearance and blend in, even while its essence is undeniably foreign. I suspect many of the critical reactions to my work have a lot to do with this tension between appearance and essence.” This fool, who is a foreigner in Chinatown, is literally missing THE point of EVERYTHING. And the audacity to talk about an “essence” absent of any account of history and all the racist and classist forces (those he represents) that shape a place like Chinatown.

Press”Since Fast completely missed the point of Sunday’s protest, here’s perhaps a critique he might understand,” she wrote…www.chinatownartbrigade.org
