EVERYTHING SHE SAYS MEANS EVERYTHING
100 brave women posed nude for an art installation by Spencer Tunick during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
Republicans, Democrats and all other political parties were welcome to take part reflecting their anger through art against the hateful repressive rhetoric of many in the Republican Party towards women and minorities. Trump and Pence are giving many in America the belief that is OK to hate. Over 1800 women signed up for the 100 spaces to bare all in this heightened arena of politics and protest and this number alone is a testament to their bravery and desire for change. They did not know where they were going to pose when they signed up to be part of this art action, it could have been in the epicenter of the security zone, but they still wanted to participate. Our concept was for 100 women to pose with 100 mirrors. Our location was secret to keep the women safe and would only allow for a small number of participants. But 1800 women would have shown up naked in front on the steps of the convention to make art with what may be the most controversial subject in this presidential race, a woman’s body.
These are women art warriors.
Thank you to the women who posed! #EverythingSheSaysMeansEverything
I am very proud of these brave women who posed nude for this project. And the fact that 1800 women would have done this is great.
