Tie One On
Last year, along with another 24 people—all male, though I wasn't conscious of that fact until I saw the finished product: gender balance, Alex, where's the gender balance?—I was invited to take part in one of Alex Gildzen's conceptual projects. The invitation consisted of a tie, an accompanying letter giving the provenance of the ties being sent out & a request that the invitees respond with a photo of them wearing the tie they'd been sent.
With one notable exception, every body invited took part. The final collation of co-respondents is now available as two pdfs from Lars Palm's ungovernable press.25.Britches tieI think I purchasd this tie in Georgetown in 1973 while a houseguest of Tom Shales. & I think it’s the tie in the Monogram photo with James Robert Parish. last worn on closing day of the noir festival in presence of Sherry Jackson & Ron Oliver.
