Artists and Makers Studios: Submit a Flip Doll

For this show, Artists and Makers Studios are inviting artists from the DC community and beyond to submit their own flip dolls for display in their exhibit.

Flip or “Topsy-turvy” dolls are two-sided dolls connected at the waist and separated by a skirt. The skirt flips over to cover one side when the other side is revealed. The original flip dolls were black/white dolls made by slaves in the south during the Civil War era. In the words of flip doll artist Terri Dowell Dennis, they could be seen as “racist relics of the past.” In spite of their origin, many of these dolls were well loved by their owners and makers, who responded to the soft cloth bodies and enjoyed using the dolls for storytelling. In this exhibit Artist and Makers Studios would like to “revision” the flip doll as a way to show the commonalities within differences and as a way of exploring the ways in which we are all united. The challenge is to make a flip doll out of any materials you choose.

The deadline is Jan 2, 2018. Click here to learn more about flip dolls and click here to enter!
