Acupuncture Anesthesia by Tang Muli, 1972
“Tang Muli, graduate of one of Shanghai’s most academically rigorous high schools, was sent in 1968 to work as a dairy farmer. He taught himself to paint in his spare time, and exhibited this work in the national exhibition of 1972. Very interested in science during his years in school, he has here depicted the much publicized success of Chinese acupuncture at preventing pain.”

It’s so different. But it’s all different. There’s gentrification of Cobble Hill. Fort Greene’s gentrified, Harlem was gentrified, Bed-Stuy’s gentrified, and Williamsburg is gentrified.
People lived on the Lower East Side and got priced out of there. Then you moved to Williamsburg—oh, it became too hip. Now they are going to Bushwick. What is going to happen to Bushwick? Next thing, after Coney Island, there is the Atlantic Ocean.
