    About The Work

    Clever as usual, Jonathan Monk took a Flash Art magazine cover and "remade" its title with collage to read as something more unseemly. The cover depicts a Polaroid that French artist Pierre Huyghe used for his 2002 documentary, Block Party, about the early hip-hop movement in New York City. Guessing at the identity of the person in the portrait, the inscription "Flash?" sits under DJ Grandmaster Flash's visage, a founding father of hip-hop. Monk's simple alteration plays on a word, skewing the context and the meaning of this unique, of-the-moment cover.
