Of Swastikas & Confederate Flags (Collectibles Vs Living Culture)

Of Swastikas & Confederate Flags (Collectibles Vs Living Culture) | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I was watching Morning Joe and they were freaking out that eBay (and perhaps others) were selling swastikas while removing confederate flags. They said such an announcement to remove the flags was hypocritical and a pandering publicity move.

Donna Sharrett’s Art of History, Remembrance and Time

Donna Sharrett’s Art of History, Remembrance and Time | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

"Donna Sharrett’s work is both emblematic of its time and difficult to classify. At first glance, it may appear to be quintessentially postmodernist, offering a borrower-conjurer’s cornucopia of found objects and unusual materials that have been plucked out of their original, utilitarian settings and repurposed. At the same time, though, Sharrett’s mixed-media abstract art is not intentionally postmodernist at all..."

 

Donna Sharrett: Love Songs and Sampling continues at Pavel Zoubok Gallery (531 West 26th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan) through February 7, 2015.
