November, 2018

To the Friends of Giraffe:

We are adding Holly and Jolly to Santa's sleigh, with red noses of embarrassment over the attitude of the U.S. government towards "others" - others among us, others who want to be among us. (In fire-scorched California, we call them Rain Dear).

Our new feature "!Brazen Hussy", dedicated to women artists who have produced daring, unapologetic work, is arousing some welcome discussion. We have added five more for you:

Sarah Lucas, one of the YBA (Young British Artists) with her "genitalia extravaganza"

Leonor Fini, beginning with "Woman Seated on a Naked Man"

Christina Quarles, " Baby I Want Yew to Know All Tha Folks I Am"

"Rape's Heroic Underpinnings"

Anne Brigman, Photographing Yourself Naked.

And, trumpets sounding on this one, we are now offering !brazen hussy tshirts, for those of you who want to spread the brazen news. You can now be a !brazen hussy yourself with shirts, mugs, pajamas, jackets, and more

The !brazen hussy shop can also be accessed from our boutique

Our electronic quill article this month is titled Heavy Weighs the Silence. We look at the Maoris, yestermonth, voices that yell and voices that we strive in vain to hear, undressing hubris, and a contemporary take on the Cistine Chapel.
