You know how it can feel weird as a woman when your body parts, set next to some dude's, are bigger? You know how the next thought can be, "I must be the wrong size"? (I'm not countenancing this line of thinking, just acknowledging it.)
That's one thing this big shouty Barbara Kruger piece at SAM is about. Elles opens tonight. But the opening is sold out. So it opens tomorrow.
Barbara Kruger, Untitled (What big muscles you have!), 1986, self-adhesive strips and Letraset on acrylic panel, 5 by 7 1/2 feet
