Adrian Rifkin Adequate Knowledges : finale
Hanging over from last year, from childhood’s end, to borrow a phrase from Arthur C Clarke, here are some reflections on having once read James Baldwin, ‘Giovanni’s Room’, (1956), three years before he (I, in the case) first visited Paris, read 1961/62 one guesses, but, in all of that what was and what still is desire, before and after an age of polygendering? Was it this? The 1954 Facel Vega? Or was the Facel Vega all along something to do, rather, with Art?
