Quotes

"While living in New York City in the 1990’s, Aleksandra Mir encountered countless Anti-Abortion protests, many of which included graphic and grisly images of aborted fetuses. The artist's response is a simple message in the Helvetica typeface, in baby blue and pink colours. Not unlike Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace project or General Idea’s Image Virus [AIDS], Mir had the design printed on as many surfaces as possible: as silkscreens, postcards, manicure sets, pen knives, dental floss, sewing kits, cigarette lighters and handbags. Keep Abortion Legal has also appeared in numerous museum exhibitions, often meeting with controversy. 

Given the current political climate and the increasing threats against funding for Planned Parenthood, the project unfortunately feels as timely as ever. This summer the work will take the form of a massive billboard alongside Interstate 70 in Missouri. 

Stick it on your car, guitar, notebook, laptop, skateboard, water bottle or bulletin board." (Nothing Else Press)
