What's it like to be at ground zero of a revolution? What's it like to have that art be a functional part of the revolution? What's it like to have to flee the country because your government hates your art? What's it like trying to follow Uncanny X-Men in Egypt before the internet? Ganzeer answers it all in this suuuuuper fun interview

So, we record these WeEatArt artist interviews long before we put them up but this week's one with Jane Dickson is pretty now-relevant. She talks about being an artist in the Reagan era--and the larger NY scene including Basquiat, Sol LeWitt, Charlie (Wild Style) Ahearn, Kiki Smith, Fab 5 Freddy--how artist had to stick together, what NYC was like("as long as nobody knifed you, you were on easy street") and also--how all the guys she wanted to give her jobs wanted to fuck her but the guy she wanted to fuck (from Studio 54) wanted to give her a job..
It's a lot about how, when opportunities are limited, artists cluster together and support each other (""by 86 we were deep into AIDS and half the people I knew were dying or died") but it's also about how she kept an individual voice so there's a lot to think about. And places little girls aren't supposed to go. And strippers. Anyway here it is:
