In yet another extreme departure from reality and into the stuff of sci-fi, several presenters and attendees at the ReAwaken America Tour fell ill after the Dallas, Texas, event—but, instead of putting the blame where it obviously lies (we are in the middle of a viral pandemic), they claim their sickness came from an anthrax attack. The far-right, conservative, and QAnon-friendly ReAwaken America Tour featured the biggest names in Q, alongside several big-name conservative figures: My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell, Eric Trump, disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn, podcaster Joe Oltmann, Trump adviser Roger Stone and attorney Sidney Powell, and Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, a celeb in the Big Lie circuit who claims he has the ability to prove whether ballots from the 2020 election were real or fake. Dozens of people at the event claimed they became ill after gathering in a green room during the event—suspiciously just as the new omicron variant of COVID-19 began to surge around the globe.

Chinneck is known for his surreal architectural interventions—these include melting facades, a condemned building that unzips, and twisting red post boxes—that upend ubiquitous designs in favor of bizarre counterparts.

Ghanaian artist Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe has a proclivity for contrast. In his striking portraits of Black people, he gravitates toward shades of gray to render the skin tone of single figures or small groups, who sport patterned garments, hats of textured fabrics, and generally vibrant fashions that are in direct opposition to their physical features. The bright, bold color palette is the artist’s preferred method for translating emotional states, inner lives, and idiosyncrasies, one he emulates with the richly textured impasto backdrops surrounding his subjects.
