The 12th Annual San Francisco Altered Barbie Exhibition: Mission Barbie, a showcase of creatively altered Barbie dolls, takes place at Shotwell 50 Studio in San Francisco. “Barbie can be ANYTHING,” says participating artist Ruby Pearl. “She is a perfect subject for societal statements,” agrees artist Deborah Collotti. “You can do anything you want to her, but she’s not blank to start with. You either have to work with her or against her”
Barbie is on a mission…..to kick some long needed ass! Gather up your discarded ideologies and come to see what Barbies mission is. Is it to save or take over the mission district (beloved 94110 / 94103) or San Francisco, CA or the entire USA, or the World? Is her Mission To Eat you, Prey on you or Love you? Or all three?
