EveryBody!

Today I biked downtown to the art district to meet up with with Heinous for a mutual friends’ gallery opening at I-space. I wore jeans and a button-down shirt, but sadly, couldn’t remember the new knot I learned for my gallery show (the Pratt knot, my new favorite) and decided to go tieless rather than revert to the Windsor.

The show was  “EveryBody!: Visual Resistance in Feminist Health Movements, 1969-2009” and it was amazing. There were cunts everywhere. There was a coloring station including crayons with coloring pages from The Cunt Coloring Book*, a whole lot of zines (including Tip of the Iceberg, an excellent book on the clitoris which my friend wrote, drew, and published), prints from A New View of a Woman’s Body on the walls, and a giant plush cunt in one corner.

Our friend went to the fancy artists’ dinner, so Heinous suggested that we get Thai food at a restaurant a couple of blocks away. It turned out to be a restaurant that we’d gone to together when I first moved to the city, which I hadn’t seen in the five years since, and I had the best kind of nostalgia. Then we biked back to Uptown and did our best to melt our brains by watching hours and hours of The L Word. I’m pretty sure I succeeded and that my brain is permanently mush, which I’m sure the zombies will appreciate when they invade.

* Google Books has The Cunt Coloring Book listed under “humor”, but I think it’s more “educational”.
