Loop’s current show Sweet Summer Sixteen, a group show featuring members past and present, celebrates Loop’s birthday. The show’s title reminded me of the 1984 John Hughes film Sixteen Candles starring Molly Ringwald. In recognition of Loop’s sweet accomplishment I pulled some quotes from the film…. a kind of preface to the photo essay of the exhibition.
“It’s really stupid. He doesn’t even know I exist”.
“Are you going to class today. I don’t know if I’m emotionally ready.”
“I know it just hurts.”
“That’s why they call them crushes. If they were easy they’d call them something else.”
“When you find the right guy. Don’t let him boss you around.”
“What’s happenin’, hot stuff.”
“I really love Rudy. He is totally enamoured to me. I mean I’ve had men who’ve loved me before, but not for six months in a row.”
