CUE Art Foundation Helps Artists Navigate Obamacare

Pin It

Every American deserves healthcare, and that includes the creative class. While that is becoming more of a reality for the previously uninsured, it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily an easier process than it was before Obamacare kicked into high gear. A new video by the CUE Art Foundation is making that a little easier.

Brokelyn and Greenpointers recently shared “Every Artist Insured: Navigating the Affordable Care Act.” This invaluable resource for artists covers the most basic elements of healthcare, from explaining copays and deductibles, to how incomes made-up of odd jobs and freelance work may qualify many art worlders for Medicaid in 2014. Renata Marinaro of the Actors Fund does a great job of taking viewers step-by-step through the corn maze of the healthcare landscape, and we can’t encourage people enough to share this video.

Enjoy the video below:

  1. Whilst fashion may try to subvert or construct gender identities, it may simply support social ideals already in place. As Malcom Barnard writes in his book Fashion as Communication, “Signs are only meaningful on the basis of their relations to all other signs” (1996, p156). In this way fashion can only convey a meaning when coupled with other signs (particularly the body itself), and as such cannot construct a gendered identity of its own accord. In order for clothing to be a signifier of a gender identity, that gender identity must already be constructed in order to give fashion its meaning. In which case, fashion is not constructing gender identities; it is reflecting and reinforcing them. Not all fashions have been accepted by society, the most obvious examples being skirts and the colour pink not being acceptable for men (Lurie, 1992, p214). Some designers, like Jennifer Minniti, have attempted to promote skirts and dresses as a male alternative; however such designs have not succeeded in the mainstream (Shreve, 1998). This is likely due to them not conforming to society’s expectations of gender identities. Men in skirts are still considered to be cross dressing, and as such skirts remain signifiers of femininity. Gender identity also comprises more than appearance. Gesture, behaviour and social standing all contribute to a person’s gender identity, and whilst fashion can attempt to draw on or hide these signifiers it cannot do so completely.
