JEN SELTER JUST TAGGED ME AND SAID I WAS BEAUTIFUL ON INSTAGRAM.
Just had someone yell “I’m all about that bass baby!” at me. Welp so much for an empowering song. Boys somehow found a way to put it into their cat calling.
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.
ugh people who are commenting on the joyce manor stage diving incident are driving me nuts. punk rock is so disgusting and sexist. stop it, just stop.

Everything has been done a million times. Sometimes you use it and it’s yours; another time you do it and it’s still theirs.
