I’d heard the name but admittedly didn’t know who Taylor Swift is and somehow managed not to knowingly listen to her music. Are you a fan? Aside from Lena Dunham, main stream pop culture isn’t on Greenpoint’s map, but a show on view at Fowler Project Space titled “Who’s Taylor Swift Anyway?” seeks “to explore our relationship to celebrity through embodiments of the pop-fictional character, Taylor Swift.” Now I know.
At the opening there were paintings and interactive art installations. I instagrammed “D” the dog with a donut (#iamtaylorswift) while cruelly not letting her eat the art. The catchy tunes on repeat were familiar and got stuck in my head. I hate that! The night was capped off with this performance by Chris Tyler, who doesn’t need an introduction. Just watch.
