Rah, rah, rah in the Times!!!


Late yesterday I spotted an image by Philadelphia’s Rah Crawford on the back page of the NY Times Friday weekend section (no image in the online version, alas). Crawford, who amazed one and all in Philadelphia a few years ago when he did a performance in which he destroyed his own unsold paintings with a power saw, has a distinctive style and approach. The image is part of an exhibit of work about the 1968 Memphis sanitation workers’ strike, by 12 contemporary artists in Brooklyn at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts. Rah, rah, rah.
