Exit Through the Bathroom: DES 225 Exhibition

Location: Design Museum, Cruess Hall (First Floor) Date: December 6–7, 2017 Design Museum Hours: 12–4 PM Reception: Wednesday, December 6, 7–9 PM Cost: FREE. We invite the community to our exhibition, in collaboration with the Campus Community Book Project. Our topic matter is inspired by the themes and stories in Janet Mock's powerful memoir, Redefining Realness. Please click to expand to read the full description of two projects that we would love your involvement in. Also, please invite your friends to this FB event as well. Exit Through the Bathroom explores the possibilities of a safe space for folks with marginalized identities, in the form of an apartment that explores safety and joy. (Yes, we are building an apartment in an exhibition space. ) This is a collaborative project in DES 225, a studio class for the 1st year UC Davis Design MFA students to put together an exhibition in collaboration with the Campus Community Book Project.

We will also be displaying this in the Mondavi Lobby before Janet Mock's talk on February 5th. You are completely invited. -------- We also want to invite you to collaborate in our exhibition. We are currently looking for community contributions to two projects in particular: The Closet Project is an installation that will include a closet that holds duplicate clothing items from various individuals of the community. The goal of the display is to experience people's chosen clothing and what it means to them, and how it relates to their resilience, identities and lived experiences since we all making clothing decisions every day. The display also allows the exhibition participants to be a part of these identities by trying on the clothes and reading a laminated description of the wearer.
If you are interested, the form is very quick, and you just submit pictures of your chosen garment and answer some questions about yourself and your favorite piece of clothing. You do not have to be physically in the area to participate. We will purchase a close duplicate as part of our exhibition since clothing is so precious to the contributor. Please submit by Wednesday, Nov 29. The Closet Project Google form to participate is here: https://goo.gl/forms/UrGIBC0o9GLeaPPs2 ------- The Vanity Project is an interactive project which is meant to engage audience with the main ideas of the exhibition. The vanity’s mirror is an interactive screen which lights up when a person sits behind the vanity, and shows the face of the person sitting in front of it with a series of answers to 3 different questions asked from different subjects moving on the picture.
Also, audience are able to hear the stories or responses at the same time. We will conduct an audio-only interview that should take about 30 minutes at most, and the 3 starting questions are: How do you see yourself when you look in the mirror? How do you think public sees you? If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? We are currently looking for voice actors for this exhibit, so if you are avaliable on Wednesday, Nov 29 after 1:30 pm for about 15-20 minutes, we would really appreciate it. We aim to practice principles of intersectionality and community-based feminist research, and to have the lives of UC Davis and the wider Davis community be reflected in our exhibition. This is important for affirming the representation of their struggles and lives.
We appreciate your interest.

Hi all. We are still looking for photo and text submissions for The Closet Project. Please submit by Tuesday night, but the earlier the better would be enormously helpful to us, since we are presenting to the Campus Community Book Project staff on Wednesday morning of the progress of our project so far. Thank you. "The Closet Project is an installation that will include a closet that holds duplicate clothing items from various individuals of the community.
