How many times a day do you erase yourself? How many hours of work do you that goes unseen and unappreciated? How many people benefit from it? How many are complicit in the invisibility of your labor?

In celebration of the one year anniversary of and International Women's Day 2019, visitors to the Nasty Women CT Exhibition are invited to bring printed out Invoices from the website and post it to the #billthepatriarchy wall. There will also be a station available to calculate your annual salary on Invoice worksheets to be filled out and posted on the #billthepatriarchy wall at the opening and will remain for the duration of the exhibition.

Bring your printed invoices or fill one at our show tomorrow!

In some personal news...
Last month I had the absolute joy of being the family resident at The Wassaic Project in upstate New York. I remembered what it was like to pull an all-nighter in the studio, met an array of wonderfully talented souls, made a ton of artwork and connections...AND I got to have my two-year old along for the ride! 

A huge portion of that work will be on view this month as part of the Nasty Women Connecticut Exhibition at Yale Divinity School. I'm back in the Bay Area now, but if you are local I hope you can go and please share with any Yale and Connecticut family and friends! Thank you for taking part in and Happy International Women's Day.

In Review

"Patti Maciesz’s invites passersby to calculate the dollar worth of the time they spend taking care of others — in particular, time spent in the home doing the work to care for a family. Most pointed (and fun) is an invoice made out to the patriarchy for running a household."
