Artist Ves Pitt’s Cross-dressing Isn’t Fooling Anyone

Ves Pitt's La John Joseph (2008).

We like Ves Pitt’s she-man because she-he looks like a woman dressing as a man dressing as a woman, or like Cindy Sherman dressing as David Bowie dressing as Cindy Sherman. And also, there’s something incredibly compelling about a glitter mustache. Must we have a better reason? Pitts is on view at Christopher Henry Gallery through January 11.
