Event Details

ChatterBox Arts International presents the San Francisco 8th Annual Altered Barbie Exhibit that is taking place at Shotwell 50 Art Space. The Altered Barbie Exhibition is about people coming together to transform these relatable and relevant icons into not so everyday ART that reflects our current society. Making Art from Barbie and Ken creates dialogue and community where there is none.

The Altered Barbie Exhibition is a local creative re-use art show. Ken and Barbie, modern day icons, permeate every corner of our culture. Everyone recognizes and relates on some level to these icons regardless of who you are, your age, cultural or economic background, and lifestyle choices.


Come dressed as your favorite Birthday Barbie or Ken and meet the artists who have resurrected and reinvented Ken and Barbie into art and performance. The evening will include Barbie Films, Barbie Performance, Barbie MC, Live Music, Gregangelo’s American Icon, belly dance and more
– please note that the venue page says this event is 5pm to 11pm while the altered barbie page says it’s 8pm to 10pm – we’re not sure who to believe
