Tit Pin Project, a performance by Ginger Brooks Takahasi and Paige Gratland

Artists
Ginger Brooks Takahashi and Paige Gratland
Time
7 pm - 9 pm

Chest-bearer’s young and old, male and female, flooded Art Metropole to participate in Paige and Ginger’s performative artist project. The artists decribe it as an on-site performance production line party. Step One: each participant is photographed showing his or her tits. Step Two: the photo is turned into a 2 and a half-inch pin. Step Three: a portrait is taken of the participant wearing the tit pin. Participants are invited to party with the pins afterwards and are encouraged to mix and match or trade.
