Brick x brick
Brick x Brick is a public art performance that builds human “walls” against misogyny. During the wall performances, participants wear brick-patterned jumpsuits adorned with colorful brick patches bearing statements of misogynistic violence made by Donald Trump. Placing divisive words on the jumpsuits is a symbol of our resistance and determination to maintain control over our bodies. Linking hands to form community walls of individuals further blocks and subverts the harmful messages that subjugate women. When standing in wall formation, we hold silent space that amplifies our message and builds unity through passive participation with the audience.
Prior to the November 2016 United States presidential election, we built “walls” in eight different states including Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Virginia. We then joined forces (old and new!) in D.C., the day after Inauguration Day 2017, as an official partner of the Women's March on Washington.
