I recently discovered LOL theorists through my favorite art blog, Art Fag City. There are not as many feminist theorist as I would like (perhaps this will beckon me to use my handy photoshop skillz) but they're pretty funny regardless.
Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists 1958 - 1968 is an exhibition at the University of the Arts Rosenwald-Wolf, Hamilton Hall & Borowsky Galleries is on view from now until March 15.
From an Associated Press Story by Joann Loviglio:
Sid Sachs, director of the university's Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery, was inspired to create the show after curating a 2002 retrospective of dancer and experimental filmmaker Yvonne Rainer. Why, he wondered, were she and other female artists of the 1960s not included in the art canon alongside Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, Claes Oldenburg and Roy Lichtenstein?
"It was like an entire generation of women artists was missing," he said. It took more than six years of researching the women and tracking down their work from museums, private collections and estates to assemble the show.
