Gendered Object:Barbie as Art at Ann Street Gallery

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Tonight is the opening reception for Barbie as art at Ann Street Gallery in NYC; “The Ann Street Gallery is delighted to present its newest exhibition Gendered Object: Barbie as Art, with an Artist Reception on Saturday, May 19 from 6 – 9 pm. This event is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.

It seems the entire world knows who Barbie is, and in Gendered Object: Barbie as Art, a group of contemporary artists embrace this plastic beauty, whose iconic pop culture image exerts a powerful influence on artistic and visual culture alike. Mass-produced objects like dolls can tell us much about the creation and significance of self-image in the context of group identities. Since the 1960′s and the advent of the “consumer society” playing with gender identity through styling and fashion has moved from the margins to occupy a more mainstream position. This has since been expressed in popular culture through an interest in androgyny, breaking conventional gender dress codes, gender bending and body reconstruction. Read more here

I have contributed about eight dolls, this is one of them in the exhibit:

A roll of the Dice

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Right now the Barbie dolls are all about the pink and the black and the white.

This one can stand without a stand, she is fully jointed and poseable, my fav type Barbie to alter. She is standing on a paper mache bowl

If you are local and were considering the workshop, its this sat!

The workshop is Sat. June the 27th in my studio at home, 11:00 to 3:00 or when people are done, I will provide lunch and a Barbie if needed or people can bring their own. I will have all the supplies needed. the fee is 60.00 for one person or 50.00 each for two, if you bring a friend. The fee is payable by check or cash at the ten women gallery or by mail, or by paypal. Taking the workshop means your piece will be in the Barbie Redux exhibit (if you want), and you are not required to pay the 10.00 entrance fee for that. Email me if you have any questions and for more info.
