A trip to see artist & former Situationist Jacqueline de Jong at Boo Hooray Gallery, Canal Street, NYC

For the first time in History there's a busker at the Bedford-Nostrand G-Train Station, signalling the official arrival of hipsters to a deeper part of Bed-Stuy.
On arrival at the Boo Hooray Gallery, 265 Canal Street, NYC, a few guests already there, and Ms. de Jong (center, in Black), perusing the show of her work. She is the editor of the magazine on view, The Situationist Times, 6 issues produced in Paris from 1962 to 1967.


A film plays in the corner - Situationists!






Painting on plastic. These I loved.
The gallery's filling up...
...and Ms. de Jong takes a seat by the mic.


She'd been expelled, or perhaps she quit the Situationist International!
