The work Left Right Left Right (1995), presented at the “Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection” exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, will now be hanging back to front. The museum has granted the request made by artist Annette Lemieux who wanted to react to the recent election of Donald Trump, according to Cary Dunne on Hyperallergic. The artist’s 30 photolithographs represent raised fists taken from newspapers from the 1930s to the 1950s, namely those of Martin Luther King Jr., Richard Nixon, Jane Fonda, alongside anonymous ones.
