The Trojan Horse

You know the story. There's a war in Troy. Some bright spark has the idea to build a wooden horse as a gift. We're gonna dig up The RENO.

Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, ending the war.

Ever since I had this project idea I have had the Trojan horse Image in my head. Excavating the Reno is the gift. We are inside. We have to make this assualt count. To destroy the hold white middle class have over the arts, which in turn decides who can be an artist, who cultural institutions are for, who has been excluded, and what stories haven’t previously been given space?

We are still in the horse. We need a strategy for when them gates open. We have to make this count.
