FORWARD UNION FAIR / DECEMBER 17, 2016
FOUR A.M. felt compelled to present a storefront window installation of Dear Ivanka posters on the occasion of Forward Union Fair, the political and community action information fair taking place on December 17th, from 11am to 8pm, at 714 Broadway (at Washington Place) in Manhattan. The signs on view were originally used in a demonstration outside Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump's residence in the Puck Building on Monday, November 28th, 2016.
Dear Ivanka, a movement begun by Halt Action Group, is made up of artists, curators, and gallery workers who outwardly address Ivanka Trump, arguably the most "progressive" member of the new administration's transition team, with legitimate and well-founded concerns, fears and demands:
Racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia are not acceptable anywhere—least of all in the White House.
Steve Bannon has no place in the White House. Jeff Sessions has no place in the White House. Talk of a Muslim registry has no place in the White House.
Hate has no place in the White House.
We refuse to "wait and see". We look to you as the voice of reason.
