!WOMEN ART REVOLUTION

April 25, 2011

On Wednesday, May 4, 2011, Guildess will attend !WOMEN ART REVOLUTION at the UW-Milwaukee Union Theatre. Join us at 7pm for this free documentary!

For over forty years, director Lynn Hershman Leeson has collected hundreds of hours of interviews with visionary artists, historians, curators and critics who shaped the beliefs and values of the Feminist Art Movement and reveal previously undocumented strategies used to politicize female artists and integrate women into art structures. !Women Art Revolution elaborates the relationship of the Feminist Art Movement to the 1960s anti-war and civil rights movements and explains how historical events sparked the first of many feminist actions against major cultural institutions, in a movement that changed the entire direction of art.
