Description

For more than 40 years, artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson (Teknolust, Strange Culture) has collected a plethora of interviews with her contemporaries and shaped them into this intimate portrayal of their fight to dismantle barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large. An entertaining and revelatory secret history of feminist art, Women Art Revolution illuminates this movement through conversations, observations, archival footage and works of artists, historians, curators and critics. Starting from feminism’s roots in 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details developments in women’s art through the 1970s and explores the tenacity and courage of these pioneering artists. With a rousing score by Carrie Brownstein of Sleater Kinney, the film features Miranda July, The Guerrilla Girls, Yvonne Rainer, Judy Chicago, Marina Abramovic, Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, B. Ruby Rich, Ingrid Sischy, Carolee Schneemann, Miriam Schapiro, Marcia Tucker and countless other groundbreaking figures.
