Queer Film Auteur John Waters Hits London “Rush” Hour

There’s no use crying over spilled poppers—or at least that’s the impression we get from director John Waters’ work Rush, on display at the Frieze London art fair. After he created the work in 2009, Waters was sent a lifetime supply by the manufacturer. He keeps several boxes in the freezer in his New York apartment but admits, “It’s really embarrassing ’cause I forget when people go to get ice and they see, like, a case of poppers.”
