Amerika: A Punch In the Face

Amerika: A Punch In the Face

An artist of the merciless times, Robert Longo's new exhibit Amerika exposes the darkness of our political moment with chilling images - a brooding, factious White House, a 40,000-bullet Death Star for our 40,000 gun deaths, a harsh weird film of him ripping up Hannity/Khashoggi/Stormy Daniels et al photos - "as subtle as a head butt." “I am preaching to the choir," he says. "But I’m not preaching, I’m fucking screaming to the choir. What the fuck are you going to do about this?"

Thanks for this piece.

The line “smiling through the nightmare” comes to mind for some reason. But a lot of us are having trouble with that. Like Robert Longo. Clarity is such a bitch.
