Inspired by a figure whose public persona incorporates an almost comically wide range of feminine identities—daughter, wife, mother, sister, model, working woman, blonde—Ivanka Vacuuming is simultaneously a visual celebration of a contemporary feminine icon; a portrait of our own relationship to that figure; and a questioning of our complicity in her role-playing.
We would hope she would see that Ivanka Vacuuming is relevant beyond its content because it breaks down perceived and real barriers between the artist and audience. This is a great example of a participatory exhibits in contrast to the town’s ‘please-do-not-touch’ mainstay museums. We welcome engagement and discussion with Ms. Trump or anyone else.
