TRUMPED NUTS

Traveling Trumped Nuts Artist Selfie Project

    ABOUT THIS PROJECT

    The Trumped Nuts serve as wearable objects calling out the exhaustive buffoonery of American politics today and the negative influence it is breeding around the world. Two disparate groups voted the current president into office and continue to support him no matter the cost. They are represented in this pairing of low-brow truck nuts with old-school bow ties. The object is now a symbol of false bravado and self-serving hubris. I’m asking artists to clip on a pair of Trumped Nuts and take a self-portrait. This personal action/documentation by individual artists worldwide will serve as a collection of visual resistance to a threat that is consuming us all.
