Park McArthur produced her work for the 2017 Biennial following federal specifications for signs designating cultural points of interest such as museums, national parks, and battlefields. As directed by the Manual of Unified Traffic Control Devices, she had signs manufactured in one-eighth-inch-thick aluminum with rounded radius edges, using the Pantone 469 shade of brown. The Whitney Museum is a textbook example of the kind of cultural site that official roadside signs designate. McArthur’s signs differ quite obviously from those produced by the government, however, in that they are blank. In their openness, McArthur’s works maintain the possibly of gesturing toward points of interest that fall outside of traditional histories, including those that have been radically transformed by—even lost to—the gentrifying city, such as the Meatpacking District, or the nearby West Side piers that were once sites of a thriving shipping industry and centers of gay art, sex, and life.
Paul’s emphasis on repentance was for believers, not unbelievers. In Paul’s letters, he only used repentance once for unbelievers–Romans . Paul’s emphasis is faith, not repentance. Repentance is obviously wrapped up in faith but it is not Pauline language. Paul did use it on Mars Hill. The language in Acts and Paul’s letters is different. How do we account for this? The explanation is to understand the purpose of the book. Acts was written to Jews to explain why the kingdom of God did not come and the fall of Israel. Repentance was familiar with them and would have fit in with their thinking. Paul’s emphasis for the unbeliever is faith. Study Paul’s letters for yourself and see how many times and in what context Paul used faith vs. repentance.
