Ruptured “Girls at Eleven”

“…go home and make work out of what you have in your studio. You already have what you need.” – Kim Abeles, Art & Activism Panel, 2011
With this in mind, Madison’s 1998 photo essay of girls as they are leaving a LAUSD elementary school for middle school became the basis for a new work. The pictures are portraits of “girls at eleven” as they are leaving the safety of elementary school, where they are children, for the campuses of middle schools where their budding sexuality will define them.
