SWEEPING TRUTH UNDER THE RUG



Between the mighty and the modest, truth is the great leveler.
Republican Senator Jeff Flake, Arizona, from his January 15th 2018 defense of truth speech on the Senate Floor



 


There is but One God.
His name is Truth; He is the Creator.
He fears none; he is without hate.
He never dies; He is beyond the cycle of births and death.
He is self-illuminated.
He is realized by the kindness of the True Guru.
He was True in the beginning;
He was True when the ages commenced and has ever been True.
He is also True now.


—Guru Nanak

ANA's STORY



A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.
Aesop

As is the tradition of CoLabART projects,
it included the work of two deceased, Cuban-American artists
Felix GonzalesTorres
and Ana Mendieta,
whose work and life/death
the LA version was dedicated to.


It also included a mixedmedia work of the LA-based artist/activist/feminist Merrilyn "Cookie" Duzy
whose visage was a homage to her deceased friend and fellow artist, Norma Jean Squires

Intertwined within the fabric

Threads of many colors

Savored for the moment

Our place in the universe



Man is but a strand
in the web of life
