PREVIEW — !Women, Art, Revolution – by Alivia Seely




Revealing the values and beliefs of the Feminist Art Movement, director Lynn Hershman-Leeson, has gathered interviews with artists, curators, historians, and critics for over four decades in her film !Women Art Revolution.

The documentary examines the beginnings of the movement in relation to the 1960’s anti-war movements and through the evolution of female art empowerment in the 60’s and 70’s.

Selected by MOMA New York as one of the three best documentaries of the year, !WAR presents new ideas about gender, race, sex, class, and art in all of its complexity. The story of these women who exploded onto the art scene in unconventional ways that did not match the views of those in power positions is enthralling. The film features the likes of The Guerrilla Girls, Judy Chicago, Miriam Schapiro, Rachel Rosenthal, and many, many more.

!WAR will show at The Nickelodeon on Feb. 16th at 6:30 p.m. as a part of their Art Docs series. Roni Nicole’s documentary featuring local artist Michaela Pilar Brown will accompany this screening.
