2007 is shaping up to be a watershed year for feminist art. The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum will open this spring with Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party” as its centerpiece. The Museum will also host a show called “Global Feminisms” which will run March 23 – July 1.
As if this weren’t amazing enough by itself, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles will have an exhiibit called “WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution” which will run March 4 – July 16. WACK! will then travel to the Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC and to P.S.1 in New York City.
As Chicago said in an interview with Ms. Magazine, “Women–and those men who are concerned about having a more equitable world–need to understand the ways in which women’s achievements and cultural production (are) marginalized, diminished and erased…” These 2 blockbuster exhibits should go a long way in reclaiming the history of women’s art.
