AN ART ACTIVIST

Daniel J. Martinez output distills terabytes worth of complex ideas into deceptively simple pieces that confront economic, political and social disparities. He introduced himself at the 1993 Whitney Biennial by slicing open the sentence 'I Can't Ever Imagine Wanting To Be White" and imprinting it's disembodied words on museum admission badges. HIs show at Roberts and Tilton last year, "The report of my death is an exaggeration; Memoirs; Of Becoming Marrenschiff" was considerably darker. A rumination on LA's dehumanisation of the mad and impoverished, it was based on Sebastian Brant's satrircal 1494 work Das Narrenschiff 9The Ship of Fools). For three years Martinez rode buses across LA, from morning to night, listening and recording, and working through Michel Foucault's interpretation of Das Narrenschiff.
