When I’m wearing pants, call me a he; when I’m wearing a dress call me a Limo . . . “

 Ms. Woodlawn, immortalized by Lou Reed in the 1972 song “Walk on the Wild Side”, is a celebrated performance artist living in West Hollywood. Respected for her insightful critique of contemporary culture Ms. Woodlawn is an obvious choice as one of the guest curators invited to contribute to P.1.75, Slidell’s oldest Biennale. Honored by this opportunity, Ms. Woodlawn researched work within the Slidell Art Community popular in her native Puerto-Rico and was drawn to the Batman work by Blake Boyd. Her life long exploration of duel identity informed Ms. Woodlawn’s selections which honor the ancient theme of a separate persona adopting a pseudonym.

Blake Boyd is privileged that Ms. Woodlawn shows such insight into this work, which is unusually personal for him. Blake, known locally for his disguise and under cover fight against evil, has lived a double life between Slidell and Manhattan since 1993,

adopting the alias “Blake Boyd”.
