The Barbie Family Players uses Barbie Dolls as actors in tableaus that address social issues. These works were created during the Clinton era presidency. Many of the pieces invoke incidents involving our former president. Blues For Monica, What Are They Hiding? and Bubba and the Judge are three examples. The slave trade (Choice Cargo), police brutality (Unarmed, Shot Dead), right wing religious intolerance (Kill For Christ), and interracial marriage (Barbed Wire and Wedding Bells), are other topics the pieces address. Piss Jesse reflects on a photograph popularized by a former U.S. Senator, while If It Swims It's Food shows a great white shark preying on a black street kid (think Nike). Some of the works, like 27" of Poison Ivy, just poke fun at Barbie.
