The Turn of the Screwed
Judith Bernstein’s outrageously penile screw drawings continue to be anti-war, anti-sexist statements that rise above simplistic agitprop. Her show last year at the Mitchell Algus Gallery in Chelsea garnered considerable attention.
The first art critic to review her work (in the Village Voice in 1973), I have been a long-time champion. Recently, I introduced her talk at the Drawing Center in SoHo and, through the miracle of my new Flip digital recorder and YouTube, I can share a 10-minute clip right here:
Many thanks to Judith Bernstein, to the Drawing Center and its executive director Brett Littman.
