“Freedom to Write”

pape-freedom-tunnel

FREEDOM reminisces on his first visit to what would become the “Freedom” Tunnel.

“In 1974 (at the tender age of 14), my older brother took me to the Freedom Tunnel for the first time. The location wasn’t named that back then, it was just a freight train tunnel that ran for 3 miles beneath Riverside Park from West 72nd to West 122nd Streets. We entered through a Parks bathroom that had a gaping hole in its floor—an entrance that had been created by Steve 161 with a stick of dynamite and subsequently covered with a large piece of plywood. After climbing through the blasted area, we slid down an embankment of dirt and landed at the base of the train tracks. The two of us spent the day climbing up and down the sides of parked trains, practicing our tags with the small can of spray paint we had with us until it ran out, then we headed home. I had no idea how significant an event that day would become.”

The Art of the Scarf

massif-central

We interview Brooklyn-based artist Tessa Perutz about Massif Central, a company she founded that produces a line of contemporary art scarves featuring artists such as Tal R, Jonas Wood, Keegan McHargue, and Joshua Abelow.

 

When/Why did you start Massif Central?

MC was officially launched in April 2014 but it had been a work in progress for a year before that. I have always been interested in the artist’s relationship to society’s common landscape (ie: fashion, urban design, furniture, etc). I wanted to ask artists to reflect upon their 2-D practice and envision their works in a more fluid manner, specifically in relation to adorning the body. I wanted to give a real physical and tactile space for these wonderful works of art to exist. We are so privileged in modern society to be able to see and experience such phenomenal art up close, but we are almost never physically involved in the works, especially paintings. I wanted to get as close to that experience as possible, actually “feeling” these works.
