Marcia's "Tease" opening @ Susan Inglett (pictures)

Marcia's opening last night at Susan Inglett art gallery in Chelsea, New York was, take my word for it, fabulous. Old and new friends came out to celebrate this exhibition in which Marcia showed sculptures for the very first time! I will let others comment on the exhibition itself, but here are some pictures from the opening:

There's a white woman wearing African garb. I'm wondering, is this okay? Do you have an opinion on women who are not African, wearing traditional African clothing? She just seems to be white and I don't know what to feel about it. It feels wrong.

I cannot find the "African garb" you are talking about in any of the pictures. And I would know African traditional fashion when I see one. Even so, there is absolutely nothing wrong with anyone wearing any ordinary dress of his/her choice, wherever such dress comes from. Fashion police should only exist on entertainment TV.
