About the Work:
‘Head of African American Studies’ is an extension of Marcarson’s ‘Entitled Series,’ reproductions of works taken from The Metropolitan Museum of Art pointing to the outdated, ineffective, and often damaging perspectives that White, cishet men throughout history have perpetuated through their leadership and rhetoric. This work recasts images of powerful White figures into roles that are inappropriate for THEM, yet they often continue to occupy.

Not For Them was hired to create an New York news stand that would allow customers to preview the Daisy Fragrance. We created wild pastings and gave it weathered look. We also spray painted on top of the work to give it a more authentic New York feel.
