Trump Steaks in the Meatpacking District

April 22, 2019

Trump Steaks in the Meatpacking District

Photographer-artist-provocateur Andres Serrano has assembled an array of 1,000 Trump-related objets in an exhibition called “The Game: All Things Trump” at 409 W 14th Street, in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Mr. Serrano has been assembling his collection for thirty years, and organized the exhibition to show that President Trump “didn’t appear out of nowhere.” Exhibits include a slice of cake from Donald and Melania’s 2003 wedding, Trump Vodka, Trump Steaks, remnants of the Trump Shuttle, and a Trump University diploma.  “I wanted to paint a portrait of Donald Trump using his own brushes,” Mr. Serrano told the Washington Post.

The show’s title is drawn from the 1989 Milton Bradley board game “Trump: The Game,” released with the tagline “It’s not whether you win or lose, but whether you win!”
