Pink is an American fantasy color that plays a puzzling role in society; it is either lovingly caressed or shunned like a pair of last season’s Uggs. The works in Shrink It Pink It range from the beautiful to the grotesque, employing humor, sexuality and princess culture. The show’s title is based on a common marketing catchphrase, “shrink it and pink it,” that is still used and dates back to the 1950s when product designers transformed household items in order to attract female consumers. The show celebrates the ways women and men covet this scintillating shade.
An extensive selection of work from 90 artists is displayed salon style at Cathouse FUNeral—a visual cluster f@*k of sweet serendipity, where different approaches to Pink unite in cohesive symbiosis.
Opening all day Saturday the 18th from 1-7 PM
