Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution

Thanks to Sue, I have just found out about this exhibition at LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibition itself is one thing to be fascinated with, but I am even more interested to find out that the exhibition has an associated blog, with reviews, links to reviews, commentary, and even video clips of people discussing their work. It’s just wonderful! For example, here is the artist of the cover image for the catalogue (shown above) discussing the ways in which women’s body parts are appropriated to sell books, and ironically it was her feminist statement on this that was selected as the cover for the catalogue:

And here are some of the blog reader comments about their conflicting feelings over the cover.

Like Sue, I think this is really innovative – I can’t think of any other museums or galleries using blogs to engage the public in critical discussions of their exhibitions.
