The gesture here is the giving and taking of clothes, in the strange environment of an art gallery, but in a neighborhood where the second-hand clothes store is a staple.

Description

Josh Friedman, perhaps best known locally for his ceramics, switches from being an artist to a social worker. The gesture here is the giving and taking of clothes, in the strange environment of an art gallery, but in a neighborhood where the second-hand clothes store is a staple. The work invokes issues of value and need. The clothes, anonymously given, rank with the highest charity.
