Field Trip: San Diego Art Institute

Wooohoooo! Gender study art!!
Poor Josh.
I wasn't expecting the Art Institute to have such contemporary work, but they also only had one collection up while Josh and I were visiting. It was a great grouping of artists and the topic was thoroughly explored. This collection was focused on handmade items exploring the thought of typically male items made by a traditionally female hand craft. Embroidered jumper cables. "Skin" made of panty hose. General contemporary art shenanigans.
