Consensual Sex on the Beach
San Francisco’s latest pop-up, That Lady Thing, is bringing serious activism to the social media age. Themed around Instagram, the traveling exhibition addresses feminist issues such as sexual harassment and the wage gap in modern society. Works such as the “Sea of Objectification” (a ball pit filled with breasts instead of balls) hope to use visuals to speak out against gender inequality. Bearing the tagline, “Part Speakeasy. Part Speak Out,” the pop-up is currently a 21 and over experience featuring drinks with punchy names (i.e., Consensual Sex on the Beach) that the creators hope to adapt into a more teen-friendly exhibit.
