AABNAB at KSW!

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

As if I didn’t have enough to do this week, Mail Order Brides/MOB are installing our work in a show at Kearny Street Workshop!

Given how busy I’ve been, there’s something nice about coming to a point in one’s career where you don’t have to freak out and make something new from scratch in a panic every time. I’m starting to feel like an elder stateswoman (mind you, in this case, I’m the youngest of three elder stateswomen…). Case in point: the return of an incarnation of M.O.B.’s Always A Bridemaid Never A Bride, in a group exhibition at Kearny Street Workshop entitled Dirty Work.

The context is definitely different from Yerba Buena’s Bay Area Now 4 (the last place we installed it). Dirty Work invites viewers to consider the impact of the domestic worker industry on communities and the larger economy, and to consider the experience of doing “dirty work.” Naturally, our considerable Professional BridesMaid expertise as pre-domestic workers made us a shoo-in for this show. It’s about time we had another chance to hawk our bridesmaid services, especially in the next-best thing to a bridal faire…
