papillionart Such a pleasure to chat with Sam & Tury of @friendswithyou last night. We talked about there continuing the tradition of the LA movement of #LightandSpace, their questioning of everything, the broad message of love and friendship that weaves there work together & how LA is an inspiring place to be right now for artists. #art #friendswithyou #love #light #michellepapillion #michellejoanpapillion #arttalks cred @princeofpacoima 7d

papillionart So excited about this talk, last year this dress was on display at @lacma congrats to #LorraineOgrady for being a 2015 Creative Capital awardee RP from @mocalosangeles "WAIT
wait in your alternate/alternate spaces
spitted on fish hooks of hope
be polite wait to be discovered
be proud be independent
tongues cauterized at
openings no one attends
stay in your place
after all, art is
only for art’s sake
THAT’S ENOUGH don’t you know
sleeping beauty needs
more than a kiss to awake
now is the time for an INVASION!

That's the poem Lorraine O'Grady shouted at the opening of @newmuseum's Persona show in 1981. She had arrived as her own persona—Mlle. Bourgeoise Noire, wearing 180 pairs of white gloves and whipping a cat o'nine tails. She invaded the art opening to give people a "piece of her mind," part of a guerrilla performance that criticized the predominantly white and middle-class second wave of feminism. O'Grady has ruefully noted that it would be another eight years until black artists were "invited to the party." Join her for an art talk on Thursday, February 26. FREE; moca.org/rsvp."
