Arcana Books Hosts A Celebration For Bettina Hubby
July 10, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
On Sunday, July 10th from 4 to 6PM, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts, Klowden Mann, and LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) to celebrate the release of Bettina Hubby’s Thanks for the Mammaries. This artist’s book documents the various iterations of Hubby’s ongoing project Thanks for the Mammaries, the Facebook feed which was originally installed at the LAND HQ from October through November of 2015.
In 2014, Hubby announced her Breast Cancer diagnosis on Facebook and asked her friends and community to submit “boob-related imagery.” People showered Hubby with images, videos, and verbiage that helped her heal, and inspired her to pay it forward. Touched by the uplifting effect of this communal support, Hubby sent out a call to artists to submit works for an exhibition. The exhibitions and online Facebook feed displayed the outpouring of support that resulted from Hubby’s call to action; selections of which are documented in the publication. “What continues to bring me the most satisfaction is the feedback regarding my approach, in that it has been positively impacting and inspiring people who have (and even many who have not) faced illness in their lives, or in their loved ones’ lives. This is why I wanted to release this as a book to a wider audience. This book is dedicated to the medicinal power of boobishness”.
