Nari Ward's piece titled Gimme! is part of his Role Play Drawings series. In this series Ward uses cards he found on an elementary school playground in Harlem. These cards were published in the 1960s and used to perform psychological tests on school children at the time.

Though he includes materials from neighborhoods with which he feels personally connected, the meaning behind the resulting works remain ambiguous.Read Less
