11/25/14 Art show at MIC

marcha flyer

In Quito, I’m involved with a fantastic organization called Marcha de Las Putas or “SlutWalk” which organizes workshops, art shows and a SlutWalk every March where folks come out to march on the streets of Quito to fight against gender discrimination and violence as well as to celebrate being Sluts! I’ve been helping them with design related aspects and was asked to make the flyer you see above for the event that’s coming up on the 25th! Below is the translation of what the flyer says 🙂


SIX out of TEN: That’s what gender violence sounds like

An art exhibition in MIC * 11/25/14 7-8pm

Because: 11/25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. To recognize and emphasize this we will do a sound installation of testimonies. The main purpose of this event is to reflect and share thoughts and ideas about memories and collective stories related to violence and the experience of living as women.

What?: SlutWalk Ecuador is planning an art exhibit on violence testimonies of people who identify as women. The art exhibition will take shape as a sonorica installation with the idea of collecting stories and testimonials on all forms of violence, resistance, and the experiences of women living in Quito and Ecuador today.

Who are we?: SlutWalk Ecuador is a feminist collective that makes visible gender violence and says yes to aesthetic and sexual freedom.

About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip (queerscribe.com) and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com
