A Thwarted Chariot Ride

A place for feminism, tea, Tudor history, and various other amusements.

“You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in.”

Eliezer Yudkowsky 

Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.

less pure after you’ve touched her
maybe you should take a look at your hands”

sfmoma:

Bejeweled and begrimed. Seductive yet repulsive. Marilyn Minter’s Strut, a dirty heel wearing a Dior stiletto, is enamel painted on metal.
Allison Harding, assistant curator of contemporary art at the Asian Art Museum, writes:

Despite the excesses of Minter’s work, I cannot stop staring at one small speck of grime on the larger-than-life heel. It is just under the fleshy, swollen fold of the skin right about where the ankle meets the heel. It looks wet, three-dimensional, and for reasons I cannot quite express, outright disgusting. I feel this filthy speck and it sends shivers down my spine, undoing the façade of glamorous. It is just too close to real life. Of course, this is exactly the point. Minter’s subject reminds us that, in the end even the most glamorous figure will be covered in dirt.

How do you respond to Strut? Is it beautiful? Revolting? Glamorous? Gorgeous? Or something else?
Gorgeous brings together the collections of the Asian Art Museum and SFMOMA. The exhibition, on view at the Asian Art Museum, explores the extremes and ambiguities of beauty, inviting viewers to draw their own conclusions.

Man, I loved seeing the Gorgeous exhibit!
