subversive feminist jewy art!

Awesome textile art show at the Hebrew Union College museum. Not so awesome: the security guard who barked at me for taking notes and ordered me to get back to the tour group (I was not with a tour group). Later I watched her frisking an old lady extremely zealously. Not, you know, GROPING her, you perv. Just power-trippingly forcing said old lady to stand still for wanding in a way that was clearly uncomfortable for her and insisting she hold open her old-lady-at-a-museum tote bag without resting it on the security desk, which made it hard for her to balance. Precarious bubbe. Yes, TSA-emulating guard, the old lady is CLEARLY here to steal challah covers and I am OBVIOUSLY taking notes to aid the fabric terrorists.

Anyway, great show. Tablet magazine write-up here.
