As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary of the Wooster Collective website. we asked a group of artists who we showcased in the beginnings of the website the following question:
What's the one thing that you learned in the last decade that you had wished someone had told you 10 years ago?
The following response comes from Brad Downey
"I would advize myself to learn more languages (but I am sure I was told this and didn't listen, and I probably wouldn't have listened to my future self either). The only advice I have for others was said best by Public Enemy "Don't Believe The Hype."
The photo is a work made in London 2003. it is titled "Madonna and Child"
Materials: steel, aluminium, paint, plastic, reflective sticker, stainless steel anchor bolts, hex bolts, hex nuts,
Duration: Last time I checked was 2010 and it was still standing incognito.
It was installed with the help of Leon Reid the 4th a.k.a. VERBS(Z) a.k.a. Darius Jones dressed as construction workers. We were trying our best to look only at the ground to hide our faces under our helmets from the cameras which were recording us on either side of the road."... Brad Downey
