As it may or may not be evident from the photo above, Einarsson’s Black Suit (Sic Semper Tyrannis) now up at the Park Armory as part of the Whitney Biennial, showcases a dinner jacket and suit pants one hung inside another.  As evidenced today, the preview clearly drew press and special patrons either not accustomed to looking at objects or thinking much, one man inquiring of the work, “Why are the pants so short?”

More on the Biennial shortly.
