To call Tina Starr outgoing is a severe understatement. She's charming and loving and audacious, but like a lot of women, has been carrying an under-discussed trauma. Her exhibit of photography, video, and sculpture aims to start and sustain an important discussion. Starr drew the show's title from the 1963 song "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)," which was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King for The Crystals. It was inspired by Goffin and King's babysitter brushing off being battered by her boyfriend. "And interestingly, the song was produced by Phil Spector," Starr says. "So all of this is what makes it a really sick, twisted song."
