Violent ‘Art Exhibit’ Invites Visitors to Throw Crumbs at Vacuuming Ivanka Trump Lookalike
An art exhibit at CulturalDC’s former Flashpoint Gallery in the nation’s capital allows visitors to throw trash at a vacuuming Ivanka Trump lookalike.
A press releases celebrates the sexist and demeaning event as ‘art performance’ and says throwing crumbs at ‘Ivanka Vacuuming’ is ‘surprisingly pleasurable.’
“Inspired by a figure whose public persona incorporates an almost comically wide range of feminine identities – daughter, wife, mother, sister, model, working woman, blonde – Ivanka Vacuuming is simultaneously a visual celebration of a contemporary feminine icon; a portrait of our own relationship to that figure; and a questioning of our complicity in her role-playing,” the press release says.
“While Ivanka smiles and vacuums, graciously, elegantly, willingly, for the duration of the performance, the viewer is the one who shifts the action, throwing a handful of crumbs from a pedestal onto the carpet. Ivanka vacuums whether crumbs are present or not.”
The artist then takes her taunting to the next level in the press release and asks, “Do we throw them to help her fulfill her duty? Are we complicit? Do we throw them because it’s fun to subjugate her in this act of classic feminine domestic drudgery? Maybe she’s just asking for it, right? But what does our degradation of her say about us?”
“The public is invited to throw crumbs onto the carpet, watching as Ivanka elegantly vacuums up the mess, her smile never wavering. This process repeats itself for the entire duration of the performance.”

Why aren’t the feminists defending Ivanka Trump, or women in general over this exhibit that reflects every ugly stereotype that they claim to fight against?
This Ivanka Trump lookalike (Jennifer Rubell) is also shaming stay-at-home wives and mothers who choose to forgo a career to rear children and take care of the household.
Ivanka Trump is a business owner, mother, wife and philanthropist — a woman who would be celebrated by feminists worldwide if not for the sin of her being Donald Trump’s daughter.
