Description:

The exhibition of contemporary art features the work of women who address feminist issues either directly or obliquely, filtered through a contemporary response to Betty Friedan's critical text, The Feminine Mystique, first published in 1963. Discussed as "the problem that has no name," the indefinable unhappiness faced by women at mid-20th century is re-visited in the work of these artists, who take up this familiar issue as well as a host of new ones for the beginning of the 21st century. All media will be included in the exhibition. Interpretive programming, including a panel discussion with some of the artists in the exhibition and a screening of video art by women artists, will be developed through the run of the exhibition.







Documentation for this event is housed in The Feminist Art Project archives at Rutgers University.
