!Women Art Revolution

Lynn Hershman Leeson


!Women Art Revolution elaborates the relationship of the Feminist Art Movement to the 1960s anti-war and civil rights movements and explains how historical events, such as the all-male protest exhibition against the invasion of Cambodia, sparked the first of many feminist actions against major cultural institutions. The film details major developments in women's art of the 1970s, including the first feminist art education programs, political organisations and protests, alternative art spaces and landmark exhibitions, performances, and installations of public art that changed the entire direction of art. Over time, the tenacity and courage of these pioneering women artists resulted in what many historians now feel is the most significant art movement of the late 20th century.

!Women Art Revolution features interviews and insights from various artists, filmmakers, and photographers, such as Miranda July, The Guerilla 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 in the world of art.
