Indestructible Artifact # 11: Confidence, Anniversary Edition (Blue/Silver)
Self-confidence (or the lack of) has been a defining factor in my life. Because of this I can’t look at guards with SECURITY t-shirts or jackets without thinking about my truth. My uniform would say INSECURITY. In 2009, I made the shirts for the Art Institute of Boston (now Lesley University). Since then, the design has appeared on Artforum.com, been sold at the New Museum, and copied by the French “fashion label” Vetements (for $300 a shirt!). To celebrate its popularity, and our countries ridiculous insecurity (thanks Trump), I made this anniversary edition in 2019. The text is silver on a light blue T.
