A Horror, 2017 by Jayson Musson

Simple yet not at all subtle, Musson’s flag forces the viewer to engage in an all too befitting comment on our political present. “While Walter Benjamin referred to the history of civilization as a history of barbarism, Jayson Musson sees this phenomena in the spirit of SAW, Leprechaun 2, and The Exorcist,” said Nato Thompson, Artistic Director at Creative Time.

 

“I find patriotism lazy; I was born Here, therefore Here is great,” said Jayson Musson. “Patriotism is a part of theprogression of history in which a few mighty sovereign states crushed nearly the entirety of the globe underfootin pursuit of their inalienable rights which more often than not, was simply the pursuit of riches.”

About Jayson Musson

In writing, performance and visual art that incisively satirizes and confuses pop culture and the art world, Jayson Musson provokes the boundaries that define cultural stereotypes. Musson’s consideration of a public extends beyond the confines of art institutions, deliberately entering the open arenas of mass media. Musson’s latest solo exhibition, Demon All Day, opened in May at Salon 94 in New York City.
