"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.
It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.
“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art. Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context. Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”
Contemporary Art Week!
I absolutely love the concept behind this. Especially: “reverse lens to the past”.
"I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game."
These two were acting like complete teenagers. When I walked up, she was nuzzling her head against his shoulder. She giggled the entire time I talked with them, while he kept a big goofy grin on his face. And whenever I asked about their relationship, she clutched his arm, looked at him just like this, giggled, then said: “We’re not telling!”
I’m so sickened by this I want to vomit onto these pieces’ of shits faces.
Yeah, fuck this. FUCK these people I am so mad
Three innocent Jews got killed, who had nothing to do with Israel, and people bring up the death of Palestinians?!? The nerve… Fuck this.
These are comments made on a post by a pro Palestinian organization that supports BDS.
let’s go over the facts. A Nazi shoots up a Jewish community center shouting Heil Hitler, right before a huge Jewish holiday. A Jewish group posts condolences. And the result is goyim posting bullshit claims about Jewish ethnicity and/religion (irrelevant and untrue, and gross) and derailing talking about unrelated issues elsewhere on the globe (irrelevant) and denying us the term to our own oppression (irrelevant and morally abhorrent.) Claiming it as “activism” for Palestine is a bullshit excuse when you are dealing with the deliberate murder of an ethnoreligious minority, especially when the group that posted this is, as noted above, supports BDS. We see you goyim, and your shit stinks. We know you hold our blood cheap.
