"Clearly we live in a world of signs, and just as clearly the meaning of those signs is shifting and unstable...
this is not to say that everybody accepts the situation. It is axiomatic that those in power prefer a
straightforward approach to the symbolic. The flag is the flag, pornography is pornography, and that's that.
Leone & Macdonald opposed this sort of falsely decisive thinking-thinking that divides, prohibits and excludes."
Richard Kalina, from a review of Leone & Macdonald''s exhibition "Divided By" at Gracie Mansion Gallery,
Art in America, January 1991.
