Description of Artwork: "Aim High and Do Your Best," Kahn's Installation of 60 small works, is a humorous dissertation on growing up female. The pieces combine bits of texts and isolated images lifted from catalogues and how-to manuals written by flaccid experts; all her images are appropriated.

The Incident: A sign was put up outside of the gallery advising parental or educational guidance for children. The sign stated "A small number of drawings and photographs in these exhibitions contain sexually graphic images, images of explicit imagery of implied violence."

Results of Incident: Sign remained outside of the gallery for the duration of the exhibition.
