Vice writer Talia Beth Ralph reports :. Over men who have engaged in a little harmless online exhibitionism sending this summer may be surprised to learn that their members will [be] mounted, framed, and put on display on August 23 at a Brooklyn gallery space by an artist collective known as Future Femme … Each woman is mounting their work alongside a photo of her own genitals, and producing the dick pics in a style of their choosing. Tansy is going for a grainy, s porn look, while Violet has decided on a classic, glossy, high-end art gallery style. Meanwhile on the L train, Tansy was dealing with an ethically dubious sticky-wicket situation of her own.
I Didn't Ask For This: A Lifetime of Dick Pics is happening over October at Think Tank gallery in LA, and includes work from over 40 artists, live feminist tattooing, a full day of educational feminist panels one featuring Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson , and even pussy eating and blow-job classes. Whitney Bell: The first show in April far surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. I knew people would be interested, but I had no idea it would have the impact that it did. Over 1, people attended our opening night. We got an overwhelming amount of press coverage — everyone from Playboy to Ms. While the success of that show of was incredible, I knew I wanted it to be more: I knew it deserved to be more.
Each artist approached the project in a different way. They mostly used their OkCupid accounts, missed connections from Craigslist and other social networking sites. One of them posed as a gay man and set up her own Grindr account, receiving about dick pics. Having received dick pics myself one was even dressed up to look like Krumm from Ahh!!! Real Monsters , I had not considered any of them works of art.
My goal with this project is to make people laugh and poke fun at this alluring dating tactic I want to show the world how to take really great dick pics while creating some balance in gender equality in the art world. There are a LOT of dick fans out there. All the straight and bi women, all the gay guys and all those straight guys who have a great sense of humor and don't think there's anything gay about finding dick in a jacket funny.
