Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer Exhibition Catalog

The first phase of the #LookNowProject was in October 2018, and we are now working on our documentary theater/spoken word performance for October 2019—TitBits: Breast Cancer Stories. It will dramatize the stories of many touched by breast cancer—patient, survivor, caregiver, medical practitioner, and advocate. Inspired by Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues, it also aims to reclaim one of the seven words not allowed on broadcast television—tits. Nancy Keefe Rhodes will be the writer, and Tula Goenka will be the producer/director.

In the meantime, here’s a link to our show catalog for the exhibition at The Point of Contact Gallery. Heartfelt gratitude to ALL our participants, collaborators, supporters and visitors.

Deepest gratitude to all our participants and project creators.

Look Now Opening Reception – Colleen

Many thanks to all our participants, supporters, well wishers and visitors. It has   been a roller-coaster ride to create the Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer exhibition, and we are sad that the exhibition ended on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at The Point of Contact Gallery. We are looking into options of installing it elsewhere, and will update you as soon as possible.

In the meantime, here is one of our most fierce participants —Colleen—speaking at the Gallery Opening Reception about living with Stage IV breast cancer. Much love, power and strength to you, Colleen. May they find a cure!
