According to @cnkerr, Barbara Kruger's skatepark installation ("Untitled (Skate)") has already been modified by the skaters, creating new messages: "BE HERE NOW" becomes "BE HER." Some of the younger skaters thought the installation had been sponsored by Supreme. (📸: @cnkerr)

"The true artist is not proud: he unfortunately sees that art has no limits; he feels darkly how far he is from the goal; and though he may be admired by others, he is sad not to have reached that point to which his better genius only appears as a distant, guiding sun." - Ludwig van Beethoven (Read the full comic from @laurenpurje on Hyperallergic.)
