"The social order of things has demanded an emphasis on the differences between gender that do not in my opinion in fact exist. I’m not going to go around putting pronouns on everything. Things are often deeply compromised by the set of assumptions you bring to the world, which is this black or white, this male or female."
For our final Wednesday post celebrating LGBT Pride Month, we highlight work from artist Roni Horn, who was first featured by Art21 in the 2005 Structures episode.
