“I love a good dick okay, I just don’t want to be forced to look at it”, reads a plaque from Whitney Bell’s I Didn’t Ask For This: A Lifetime of Dick Pics travelling gallery. After the success of the first show last year, the world’s favourite dick pick exhibition is back, this time transformed into a fully-fledged feminist educational weekend.
I Didn’t Ask For This: A Lifetime of Dick Pics is happening over October 6-7 at Think Tank gallery in LA, and includes work from over 40 artists, live feminist tattooing, a full day of educational feminist panels (one featuring Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson), and even pussy eating and blow-job classes. The expansion of I Didn’t Ask For This excels the first show’s rhetoric and takes discussions around sex positivity, sexual harassment, intersectional feminism and pornography to critical ends. 150 unsolicited dick pics will adorn the walls alongside a 2ft mother of pearl stained glass Saint Dick by Sara Strickler and an illustration tracing the evolution of dick by Porous Walker – and this is just the beginning.
