Take a Picture with an Artist

Keys That Fit, Oakland, CA, 2008

A performance/installation where artists and gawkers alike could have their pictures taken with a real artist in the uptown arts district of Oakland. This artist expresses all the sentiments a real artist has: she's a cheerleader, she's defeated, she's sassy, she rocks... The artist was installed at Keys That Fit for June & July, 2008, and over 200 passers by participated on opening night. Participants were encouraged to "Have your way with her", inviting conversation about feminism & consent, and discomfort.
