Friends (For Ree), 2017 by Alex Da Corte
Alex Da Corte’s flag is a replica of a drawing made by Ree Morton sometime between May 1974 and June 1975 as part of a project idea called Something in the Wind. The physical version of this flag was never realized, although many other flags were made with her friends’ names on them. In celebration of Ree and all of the friend families we form, may we grow stronger and stranger everyday.
