Miss Meatface: On Etiquette & Entertaining

Miss Meatface is just another 60s housewife – that is, except, you’re more likely to see her donning BDSM latex while baking a cherry pie. The part dominatrix, part Stepford brainchild of California-based artist Kat Toronto fuses vintage kitsch with overt kink to tackle gender stereotypes and rewrite perceptions of what it means to be subservient and feminine.
