A Femme Revolution at P.S.1

I had the chance to see a provocative and emotionally charged exhibit at P.S.1 MOMA this past weekend. Titled WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution, the exhibit showcases international feminist works from the mid 60's to early 80's. As is the case with most P.S.1 showings, this one involves various mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, film, video and performance art. Some of the works really push the envelope to the max (think vintage pornography or Georgia O'Keefe's most prominent subject). Although WACK! is not for kids, it makes for an entertaining and educational experience for people 18+. And in addition to what's inside, check out P.S.1's courtyard artwork, Homage to Skate Culture by Ryan McGinness.

I wasn't able to take pics inside so I captured some fun shots in the P.S.1 courtyard as well as the LIC hood. Enjoy.

WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution runs until May 12th.

Opening April 20th - June 30th
