Wipe Your Feet
From an article on a British site... "Millions would love a chance to wipe their feet on Adolf Hitler and now it looks like they could have the chance with this 'Hitler rug'
The work is by Israeli artist Boaz Arad who says he is hoping to show how the Holocaust has scarred Israel, but also been misused by it.
He says the rug is a representation of what a Nazi hunter would do if he caught the ultimate prize, the Nazi leader.
The exhibition is at the Tel Aviv Center for Contemporary Arts."
I dunno. It's kinda interesting but a bit obvious. via Neatorama
Welcome to That Ain’t Art- a collaboration by four art aficionados focused on the alternative art scene in the Northwest and beyond. We hail from Roq la Rue Gallery (Kirsten and Celeste), BLVD Gallery (Damion), and Fantagraphics (Larry)... so you’ll be seeing a lot of that type of work, but we’ll also be posting whatever else we like, that looks good and is likely to not get picked up by local press. Obviously, everything in here is the opinion of that particular poster. We’ll also be talking about relevant stuff outside of the Northwest, and we’ll have some notable guest bloggers hipping you to the good stuff, so stay tuned...
