On Being Brave

A person could come to a show like mine, and they could disagree with me, and it wouldn’t ruin the show. They just wouldn’t agree with me. People say I’m brave. Well, it’s like mutual brave, like we are all in this together. It’s a messy intersection of what you think about things, what you feel about things, and I think people find solace in informative art, because it reminds them that they’re now–oh!–thinking and feeling this way.
