Ivanka Trump Responds to "Ivanka Vacuuming" Installation

Ivanka Trump Responds to Art Exhibit That Encourages Viewers to Throw Crumbs for Her to Vacuum

Ivanka Trump fires back at DC art exhibit showing look-alike vacuuming crumbs

Eric Trump referenced an art piece from CulturalDC entitled "Ivanka Vacuuming", where guests are encouraged to throw crumbs at a silent, smiling model dressed to resemble the president's elder daughter Ivanka.

The performance is being staged by arts group CulturalDC for two hours every night until 17 February, and is also being live-streamed online. It further calls the act of throwing crumbs on the floor for her to vacuum "surprisingly pleasurable".

"Here is what's complicated: we enjoy throwing the crumbs for Ivanka to vacuum".

A press release for the exhibit states that "Ivanka vacuuming" is inspired by a figure whose public persona incorporates 'an nearly comically wide range of feminine identities - daughter, wife, mother, sister, model, working woman, blonde'.

The gallery text declares Ivanka Trump to be a "contemporary feminine icon" and an avatar for the complexities of modern femininity.

There os no evidence that the exhibit is not in any way affiliated with the Democratic Party, and the artist, Jennifer Rubell, lives and works in New York City, not Hollywood.

French President Emmanuel Macron blasted Rome for refusing to take in a migrant rescue ship carrying hundreds of people. Griveaux said that the visit violated "the most elementary diplomacy" because it was unannounced.


Artist Jennifer Rubell's Ivanka Vacuuming installation at the Flashpoint Gallery features a blond model - a dead ringer for President Trump's daughter - in Stepford Wives mode as she cheerfully smiles while vacuuming up crumbs flung at her by gallery-goers. "I choose the latter", Ivanka Trump, a senior White House adviser, tweeted alongside a link to a story on the exhibit.

On Tuesday Eric Trump defended his sister and criticized the exhibition, saying she 'has done more for women than anyone in Washington D.C'. That is the icky truth at the centre of the work.

Ivanka Trump's brother Donald Trump Jr.is also not a fan. "It's amusing, it's pleasurable, it makes us feel powerful, and we want to do it more", Rubell noted. "In their crazed world, sexism is OK if hurts their political enemies", he tweeted Tuesday.

"These leftists called up a modeling agency, saying, 'You know what, I want to get a nice woman to come stand on a carpet, with a vacuum of all things, so that our people can throw food and crumbs to mimic a powerful woman who has done more for women than probably anyone in Washington, D.C.", he said.

Replying directly to Ms Trump online, Ms Rubell said she would like for her to "form [her] own direct response".
