Disturbing Innocence is the Art Show of Your Nightmares

The FLAG Art Foundation will open it doors tomorrow to quite the unusual group show. Celebrating what Claudia oh-so-hated in Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, curator Eric Fischl has brought together 50 artists, in a group exhibition entitled Disturbing Innocence, “whose use of dolls, toys, mannequins, robots, and other surrogates forms a deep and powerfully expressive genre.” In The Bluest Eye, we remember the doll as that which represents beauty by way of opposition or antithesis to the person who holds it. The doll is the paradigm. The perfect human prototype.
