Barbie® as Art!

Barbie® & Ken by Bob Kessel
I don't b e l i e v e it! Barbie® - the most revolting doll in history - is now a work of art! Generations of American women have been raised to look as mindless, dyed-blonde and plastic as this horrible doll, and many Brit. women have followed their appalling example. Barbie® is the subject of a travelling exhibition Plastic Princess: Barbie® as Art at the Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport, USA, 23 June to 29 July. This museum is only two years old and you can tell it wants to join the Anti Art Establishment, because it boasts it has works by Picasso, Matisse, Miro and Chagall. Okay, it's also got a Rodin, but that's probably a happy accident. Now it's got Barbie®! Groan. Click the title link to see Barbie® in the shower with her boyfriend. Er... Gwendolyn, you sure about this?
