"things you should know about"/Speak Loudly
Waiting rooms always seem to be lined with publications –literature trying to tell you something, sell you something, distract you, instruct you. The “things you should know about”/Speak Loudly booklet series simulates medical brochures, but examine them and you will find content
that raises questions rather than answering them. Gain insights on popular culture, history and the emotional realities of waiting under many different conditions. Find documentation of visitor contributions to previous Waiting Room Projects as well as new artistic renderings.
Lose track of time as you leaf through.

A WAITING ROOM OF ONE'S OWN
Context for the Waiting Room Project
Fifteen women from across the country—artists, writers, researchers, health professionals—share perspectives on women’s-health experience in America. Inspired by The Waiting Room: lost and found art installation, their essays range from the objective to the personal. Featuring color images from the provocative show,
A Waiting Room of One’s Own catalogs a visual-art experience
and stands as a literary experience all its own.
Texts compiled and edited by Sarah Smarsh with
art editors Marguerite Perret and Stephanie Lanter, 2011.
