Art And Politics

And today is the day Martin Luther King is honored. No one is free while others are oppressed. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And in a change of topic as I blah blog away on this holiday, I received one of those ABC No Rio COMA emails the other day. ABC No Rio seems to have been doing these COMA events for a while now and they have a really cool MySpace page. And I remember ABC No Rio for seemingly forever now as one of those radical, alternative squat community spaces in the neighborhood of the Lower East Side that has seemingly survived gentrification, genocide, the sellout and buyout of the squats and still exists to function with their cool and hip events over the years. ABC No Rio has been all art and politics for as long as I can remember. And so there is the COMA series emails again that I have been receiving, and that first show listed was actually yesterday, though the series seems to be ongoing. And I thought to repost this email because, hey, it's less writing sometimes. And the subject of this email is:
