"Anxious Man" Tee

Rashid Johnson for Downtown for Democracy

Rashid Johnson’s "Anxious Man" Tee reflects our collective anxiety. His Anxious Man/Anxious Audience series was created as a response to police shootings of unarmed black men, and the troubling rift that’s been growing between Americans since the election of Donald Trump.

As the artist says, “We should feel tremendous anxiety, and that should be the emotion that leads us to the fucking ballot.”
