a plus for our media department

From the Collection: 1960–1969 | MoMA

Celebrate International Cat Day with these two fabulous felines on view in From the Collection: 1960–1969. These posters by Gil Brown (left) and Bob Fried and Jacobs (right) are part of a floor-to-ceiling installation highlighting the explosion of print media in the 1960s. Youth-focused, expendable posters and print multiples literally plastered walls, and blurred the lines between pop culture and art. These psychedelic posters are among the 350-plus works from every curatorial department of the museum, our library, and our archives bringing a fascinating decade to life in the exhibition, which is on view through March 12, 2017.

Dear Plus Size Clothing Makers:

Stop pretending to be supportive of plus size women if you’re going to make clothes that force us to cover up ourselves in the most unflattering way possible. Stop spreading the beauty standard that all plus size women still conform to an hourglass shape. I do not have huge boobs and a non-existent tummy. I do not want to dress like the mom from “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?” when I get older because there are not enough companies that make the right type of clothes for a MAJORITY of women. Since when did being a size 14 mean you have to shop in a specialty store? Since when were we not considered important enough to have our sizes in all clothing stores? Why is it that in pretty much every department store, men’s sizes go all the way up to an XXXL without having to go to a different section? Why is it that I can comfortably fit a men’s medium shirt but not be able to fit into the largest size in the ladies department? I am continuously blown away and outraged by the blatant restrictions put on women by the media and fashion industry and fervently waiting on change.
