16. Barbara Kruger’s Blind Ideals Arrive on the High Line
The High Line Wall at 22nd Street is sporting a new mural, replacing artist Kerry James Marshall’s images of New York City’s water towers as luxury condos and apartments. In a criticism of culture and power, Blind Idealism Is…..Deadly by artist Barbara Kruger is an adaptation of a quote from Afro-Caribbean philosopher and revolutionary thinker, Franz Fanon – recreated by Kruger as a hand-painted mural. The mural, which went up on March 21st, will be on view through March, 2017.
