Teach Your Daughters Well
The Necessity of French Cafes
Eugene with ARTifact
Teach Your Daughters Well, Enseñe Bien A Sus Hijas, 2017
A book of hand-written narratives, screen-printed tote bags, an artist book, framed narratives.
Interested in the ways in which inter-generational women receive knowledge and teach wisdom through everyday rituals and traditions, Wedgeworth collected and examined the forms in which personal narrative take shape (as anecdotes, sayings, lessons and beliefs about love, sex, marriage, money, child-rearing), the power these narratives carry and how they inform, shape and direct women as new roles are assumed. In exchange for a narrative, each participant received a project ARTifact: a hand-printed tote bag to use during their daily rituals with a call to action to Teach Your Daughters Well.
This project was funded by a generous grant from Metabolic Studio.
