Octogenarian and self-described “senior slut,” Pippa Garner’s lusty practice spans mail-order catalogs, classified ads, garments with cutouts, custom cars, tattoos and performances on the streets and on television. From the early aughts to the present, as Garner’s vision has waned, she has maintained a practice of producing a t-shirt a day, using iron-on letters to tinker with popular phrases in ways that reclaim their lusty potential and thumb her nose at assimilationist narratives. Saturday, March 2 at 3 PM, join the legendary Misc. Pippa with artist P. Staff and curator Sara O'Keeffe as they discuss how to wreak havoc on the world as we know it.

Featured photograph, of a 1950s mother and daughter, city unknown, is from Ruth Orkin: Women, a book that celebrates not only the work of one of the great midcentury female fashion and photo journalists, but women themselves. There’s something very different, independent and special about the way Orkin relates to her subjects, and the way that they respond to her lens. “Do women see differently than men?” she asks. “Of course we do, because we’re different people. Everybody sees differently from everybody else. Partly it’s because you’re tall or short, or because you’re a minority or a non-minority … all the things that make up a person make their view of the world, and part of your person is your sex.”
