Temporary mural, acrylic paint, marker, spray paint, Xeroxed paper

Situated in an awkward gallery corner, We Ain’t Got Shit is an unusual commemorative mural. On one wall, several portraits of the trans activist Sylvia Rivera, in various stages of completion, are layered into chunky blocks of color. A cloud of Xeroxed pages wrap around the corner leading across the mural’s maroon ground to a near life-sized portrait of Tuesday Smillie, one of the two collaborating artists.
