One of my favorite names for a band is Talking Heads. Men in Suits might be a close second. However Men in Suits is not a band. It's the name of a Natasha Mayers' exhibit of 84 paintings depicting the corporate world and the havoc it wields. I myself don't wear suits often. When I worked I think I wore a tie though everyday or most days. In a heated 'dress code' discussion once a new principal had stated that "Gentlemen look good in ties." That resonated with me. It stuck. Suits not so much. I plan to view this Mayers show soon. I've seen some of her painting, and I liked them. Eighty-four of them in one show, at one fell swoop must be something. I want a look.
"We need artists to help explain what is happening in this country, to tell the truth and reveal the lies, to be willing to say the emperor has no clothes, to create moral indignation, to envision alternatives, to reinvent language. We need artists to help us come together and share our voices and build community around powerful issues concerning our in the world and our planet's survival. Compassion must be translated into action." Natasha Mayers
