Artist Cali Thornhill Dewitt Wants to Put a Hex on Trump:

“There’s this book, Among The Thugs, about mob mentality. I’m fascinated and horrified about this idea. The wolfpack. I see it everyday. The group is afraid. The group is empowered when together. I see groups wearing MAGA hats but very rarely individuals. News headlines more and more seem designed to agitate the group. Group fear divides. It’s all about division and blame. It’s an incredible cycle. I see very little humanity in the mainstream media, very little teaching or compassion. I basically feel pushed in certain directions, and I enjoy slapping back. There is absolutely an oppressive viewpoint that is becoming more normalised and I am comfortable saying fuck you to these oppressors in any way possible.” – Cali Thornhill Dewitt

Cali Thornhill DeWitt’s solo exhibition “Open Casket” contiunes at La Cité in Paris through September 13.
