WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution

WACK! — an exhibition held in Los Angeles' Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in 2007 — explored both the international foundation and continuing legacy of feminist art. The catalogue, designed by Lorraine Wild and Victoria Lam, "is a rich survey that works as a companion to the show in addition to being a chronicle of the impact of the women’s liberation movement that sought to end inequities and discrimination against women because of gender alone." The exhibition included work by Louise Bourgeois, Judy Chicago, Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman and Sheila Levrant de Bretteville amongst many others. "Although not all of the artists are feminists, they are all placed within a feminist context, a strategy that brings life to the exhibition and catalogue." Step magazine More info on MOCA.
