‘Stop Telling Women To Smile’ Installations by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh Pop-Up in Queen Village

May 2, 2017

Stop Telling Women to Smile is an international street art series by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. As the project’s website explains: “Stop Telling Women to Smile attempts to address gender based street harassment by placing drawn portraits of women, composed with captions that speak directly to offenders, outside in public spaces.”

Tatyana, a UArts alum now living and working in Brooklyn, NY, has wheatpasted pieces from this ever-growing series around Philly many times before: check those out here and here. She also installed a major installation at Truth To Power, an exhibition that popped-up in Philly during the Democratic National Convention (DNC) last summer.

Check out a video from Tatyana below, which explores her Stop Telling Women to Smile project in more depth:
