Movie Opening: !Women Art Revolution! opens June 24th in Hartford!

STARTS JUNE 24TH IN HARTFORD!                                                          An entertaining and revelatory “secret history” of Feminist Art, !Women Art Revolution deftly illuminates this under-explored movement through conversations, observations, archival footage and works of visionary artists, historians, curators and critics. Starting from its roots in 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details major developments in women’s art through the 1970s and explores how the tenacity and courage of these pioneering artists resulted in what is now widely regarded as the most significant art movement of the late 20th century. For more than forty years, filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson (TeknolustStrange Culture) has collected a plethora of interviews with her contemporaries—and shaped them into an intimate portrayal of their fight to break down barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large. With a rousing score by Sleater-Kinney’sCarrie Brownstein!W.A.R. features Miranda July, The Guerilla Girls, Yvonne RainerJudy ChicagoMarina AbramovicYoko OnoCindy ShermanBarbara Kruger, B.
