“We will not become what we mean to you”

August 29, 2009

in a picture is worth a thousand words

"We will not become what we mean to you"

This is yet another picture I took of the art works that resonated with me when we went through the new Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago.

“We will not become what we mean to you.”

I think about that sentence often ever since…

“I’m interested in how identities are constructed, how stereotypes are formed, how narratives sort of congeal and become history.” This is how the artist, Barbara Kruger, explained the thoughts behind her creation.
