Now Everyone Can 'Toss Crumbs' at Ivanka Trump's Look-Alike at a Washington Art Exhibition

The latest art exhibit at a Washington museum displays an Ivanka Trump lookalike pushing a vacuum cleaner and permits visitors to toss crumbs for her to clean up.

The art piece by Jennifer Rubell, called "Ivanka Vacuuming," is an exhibit that CulturalDC is running at the Flashpoint Gallery from February 1-17. 

Ivanka, who recently wore a stunning creation by a fashion designer who refused to dress Melania, appeared to be unimpressed with the exhibit when she reacted to it on Twitter.

The guests are urged to throw crumbs onto an extravagant pink carpet and watch as Ivanka vacuums up the mess again and again. 

According to a news release, the piece is “simultaneously a visual celebration of a contemporary feminine icon; a portrait of our own relationship to that figure; and a questioning of our complicity in her role-playing.”

“The viewer throwing crumbs, and Ivanka vacuuming them, is not a stand-in for one feeling, one relationship or one point of view toward this powerful and sexualized female form,” the release added. “It is intentionally open to multiple, often contradictory interpretations that are as critical of the interpreter as they are of the subject.”

In an interview on the CulturalDC website, Rubell, a New York-based conceptual artist, said that the experience is intended to draw eyewitnesses and crumb-throwers into a complicit relationship.

"Here is what's complicated: We enjoy throwing the crumbs for Ivanka to vacuum. That is the icky truth at the center of the work. It's funny, it's pleasurable, it makes us feel powerful, and we want to do it more," she said.  "Also, we know she'll keep vacuuming whether we do it or not, so it's not really our fault, right?"

Ivanka, who recently wore a stunning creation by a fashion designer who refused to dress Melania, appeared to be unimpressed with the exhibit when she reacted to it on Twitter.

Along with a link to a story on the exhibit, she tweeted: "Women can choose to knock each other down or build each other up. I choose the latter."
