Back in June, Providence Journal reviewer Channing Gray singled out Reminder, a letterpress banner by Providence artist Lois Harada, in a disparaging review of a group show at Providence Art Club. Surely out of 800 entries the curator could have found something more impactful, he said, than a three-foot long banner reading I AM AN AMERICAN. Revealingly, in the following paragraph Gray candidly admitted that he doesn’t actually like photography, which is maybe why he didn’t get Harada’s allusion to a well-known 1942 Dorothea Lange photograph. (The photograph features a sign commissioned by Japanese-American business owner Tatsuro Matsuda after the Pearl Harbor attack.) I strongly advise Providence Journal reviewer Channing Gray to steer clear of Harada’s solo show at Brown’s Sarah Doyle Gallery! If he couldn’t figure out Reminder (also featured here), who knows what he’s make of an entire wall covered in the names Anita Hill and Christine Blasey Ford, let alone the piece inspired by Japanese-American conceptual artist On Kawara.
