101 Vagina Exhibit and Book LaunchSaturday 19 April – Sunday 27 April, 2014Daily 12-5pm
OPENING NIGHT:Saturday 19th April, 6-9pm
VENUE:Goforaloop Gallery & Studios1458 San Bruno AvenueSan Francisco
 Moving, celebratory, and intense, this crowdfunded photo book uses a simple but powerful format to get its message under your skin: a black and white photo of each woman’s pubis (belly to thigh), plus her own statement, story, poem or rant about her relationship to her vagina and other pleasure parts. The photos aren’t spread-legged, so they don’t carry the visual explicitness of Femalia, though I like the women’s visible body variations of size, age, skin color, public hair choices, labia visibility, and body modification. But the book’s extraordinary gift is the voices of the women, some grappling with their own histories of body discomfort and even abuse, moving toward self-acceptance, humor, and a true embrace of the power of the pussy. This isn’t just a love letter to the vajayjay from Australian photographer Philip Werner—it’s a book about self-respect. Foreword by Toni Childs.  101 Vagina was exhibited at Think Tank Gallery in Los Angeles last week and now moves to San Francisco at Goforaloop Gallery.
101 Vagina is about breaking down the taboo around the Vagina and body image shame generally. It’s also about the sharing of story and celebration of our diversity.
On our opening night we had talks from Marriage & Family Therapist, Human Sexuality Professor, Sexologist, Sex Therapist: Dr. Hernando Chaves and Sex Educator Elle Chase (Lady Cheeky). It was covered in the LA Weekly
101 Vagina has appeared in many of Australia’s most respected media outlets. From April 5th the exhibition is in North America and through each of its exhibitions, discussions and art activities are scheduled where we hope to attract interest from women’s organizations, sex educators, academics and artists. There is also a Craftinoon table where people can craft their own art. Images on LA Weekly.
