Attention All Feminists! MoMA and Brooklyn Go Guerrilla

Art Radio, the Internet radio station of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, will streamcast a live audio feed of The Feminist Future, Jan. 26-27, organized by The Museum of Modern Art. The sold-out symposium features such speakers as Lucy Lippard, Linda Nochlin, Anne Wagner, Marina Abramovic, Griselda Pollock, Martha Rosler, and, of course, the Guerrilla Girls.
If that whets your appetite for visual sisterhood, you can visit the Brooklyn Museum’s new Center for Feminist Art, opening Mar. 23. Judy Chicago‘s The Dinner Party (above), acquired by the museum in 2002, is the centerpiece of the new 8,300-square-foot facility. Maura Reilly is its curator.
Now can we please get the Gloria Steinem quote off the walls of the museum’s Egyptian art galleries and emblazon it, instead, somewhere in Pharaohs, Queens and Goddesses, one of the three inaugural exhibitions at the new center?
