Week of 8/10


Taylor Yocum’s “for the nice girls in shows by bad men”, detail (source)

done with being nice

via tayloryocom: FRIDAY at the Des Moines Social Club, I am debuting a new installation! I’m inviting the public to share their #metoo stories on these notepads to be on display for the duration of the opening or to shred them as soon as the viewer writes it, acknowledging that not everyone is ready to share their story. There will be a counselor from Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault at the event for anyone who needs to talk. In addition to the installation, I’ll be screening my video “for the nice girls in shows by bad men,” and I’ll be bringing a bunch of snacks. Hope to see you there!
