This article was short but interesting none the less. It starts off with this declarative sentence “It is clear that female artist of the 60’s were pushed to the margins of art history. But a series of exhibitions showcasing their work reveals how un-pop many of them were.”
Some of the artist highlighted are Rosalyn Drexler, Yaoyoi Kusama, Venus Pareve, Martha Rosler and Vija Clemin.
The article wen ton to talk about how women used this time in history to begin to comment on the topics of sexuality, politics in a way that they felt was more true to themselves and their gender.
My favorite piece highlighted in the article was Rosalyn Drexler’s Chubby Checker, 1964
