Global Feminisms: The End of Radical Feminist Art?

0 Posted by - July 3, 2007 - Blog

Big Red & Shiny has an insightful review of Global Feminisms, a collection of present and future feminist artwork at the Brooklyn Museum. One concluding statement in particular is begging for discussion: “Feminist art today is not as radical, or harsh as it had been originally in the '70s; Global Feminisms shows that feminist art no longer requires spreading blood all over your body, burning bras, or imagery that looks suspiciously like female genitalia.” As there is no place to comment on the article at BR&S, fee free to duke it out here.
