“Bait and Switch”



Past Event

Eye Lounge

Phoenix, AZ  85004
Think stickers are just cheap, easy ways for kids to decorate their stuff? For Phoenix artist Malena Barnhart, they’re an art medium. Barnhart uses stickers, along with other elements of contemporary culture — from YouTube videos to party decorations — to explore the messages society sends women and girls about their worth.

See her unique twist on stickers as Eye Lounge, 419 East Roosevelt, presents the opening for Barnhart’s “Bait and Switch” exhibition, from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, June 16. It’s a chance to see Barnhart’s work, and talk with the artist about how and why she chose stickers as a vehicle for questioning the idea that beauty and perfection should be women’s ultimate goals.

Lest you think stickers don’t make for serious art, consider the fact that Barnhart’s work has been shown at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
