RROSE IS A RROSE IS A RROSE
This exhibition that took place at the Guggenheim Museum in New York attests to the way in which demimonde portrait galleries of gay outlaws,flesh cutters, cross dressers, sex workers, S/M communities, class pariahs, drag queens, artist,actors, liberated women, and transgender adventures produce a frisson, a com modifiable buzz. The bourgeois public has always enjoyed a walk on the wild side as long as a safe house awaits at the end. But while the commercial return on a demimonde work of art may be reliable the material contains interpretive pitfalls exceeding the usual problems of censorship and bad press./ Perennial Decay book
