The 9th Annual Altered Barbie Exhibition comes to the city just in time to give the classic kids toy a chance to dress up for Halloween, too.

Today is the opening reception for “In Barbie’s Name” and “What  Would Barbie Do? And Ken Too?”, two exhibits that allow artists to take Barbie and Ken’s plastic looks and transform them into…well, whatever they want. Aside from just having a little fun, the collection also wants viewers to recognize the impact of these dolls in our society and the ways in which the message of Barbie changes as she is stripped of her conventions.
