Rose Budz (Annie Rose) has curated FATTER IRL, an art show in the Old Pfizer Factory building in Brooklyn. The show celebrates fat artists/bodies. Art of many kinds made by fat people are often disregarded. Rarely are fat bodies celebrated without exceptions or justifications. The phrase “I’m fatter in real life” is used in fat Internet communities as reclamation of the phrase “I’m skinnier in real life”, in order to destigmatize the shame of weight or our hesitance to take up space.
This show is part of RE:, a constantly changing show hosted by Max C Lee and Erin Davis, dedicated to allowing artists to express themselves within non-thematic or space restricted means. The show features eleven artists, with mediums ranging from photography, to found art, and fibers. While the show all surrounds art about the meanings and implications of fat people, the pieces are still diversely ranged in their interpretations and meanings.
The show is running now on weekend for the public and weekday by appointment through November 5th.
