8447, and other addresses
by Samuel Kenswil


Info
Barney’s Beanery opened in 1927 on Route 66. In this tract of unincorporated Los Angeles County such itinerant elements as the homosexual coagulated. It came to be known as West Hollywood. At some point a sign was hung above the bar at Barney’s amongst the taps reading FAGOTS - STAY OUT. With brief interruptions, the sign was up until 1985, when it was permanently removed by those who can’t be described as patrons or owners of the establishment. The circumstances of these events are kibbitzed about by those who remain to do so.
Samuel Kenswil is an artist living in New York. He holds a BFA from Goldsmiths, University of London. He has held solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, London, and Paris.
