Happy Sunday! Evidently Donald Trump is the Anti-Christ! Full disclosure, we already sort of suspected this because he is also anti-immigrant, anti-Mexican, anti-woman, anti-humility and so many other anti-s. The question is, who is going to break the news to Michele Bachman?

Also, does this mean that Obama is not going to stroll right into the United Nations and declare himself king of the world? Maybe he’s planning to appoint himself the replacement of Anthony Scalia on the Supreme Court and he’s so busy planning it that he skipped the funeral!

And what role does Formation play in all of this?

Meanwhile here on the dirty garbage-strewn sidewalk we have our our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Barlo, CitiCop, City Kitty, Crisp, Faith 47, Flood, Hueman, JR, Madsteez, Mr. Renaissance Style, Otto “Osch” Schade, Queen Andrea, Specter, Stikman,Tim Okamura,WRSPNSK, XORS, and Zhu Hai .

New Specter at MOCADA

Out With the Old, In With the New - new Specter piece at the "Pink Elephant" show at MOCADA (photo ©Guero)

The “Pink Elephant” show at the Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts (MOCADA) in Brooklyn opened Thursday night and continued through the weekend with events and discussions about gentrification and it’s effects on culture, neighborhoods, and people.

This exhibition, guest curated by Dexter Wimberly, looks at urban planning, eminent domain, and real estate development and how they are affecting Brooklyn’s communities as well as how residents throughout the borough are responding.

We spoke with photographer and artist Guero about the show, and he thinks overall it is a pretty good and meaningful one, enough so that he also went to the artists’ discussion on Saturday.

Since it is reported that more than 65 Luxury buildings that are currently under development in Brooklyn are stalled or only partially occupied because of the economic crisis, wouldn’t it be great if some of those homes could benefit those people who have lost theirs?

In any event, we agree with Guero when he says, “I like the fact that the museum is using the exhibit to create dialogue on an important topic”.

See our previous post on Specter’s street art pieces for this show from January 21st.
