“On view [at Venus Los Angeles] is an expansive selection of work in diverse media by Marilyn Minter, Carolee Schneemann, Dorothy Iannone, Judith Bernstein, Valie Export, and Betty Tompkins, six artists who unapologetically create representations of female sexuality. Bound by a dedication to alter the ways in which women’s bodies are represented in both fine art and media, these artists… create images that unabashedly portray the vagina as a locus of power.
“The exhibition features works produced between 1964 and the present, in order to situate these artists’ practices as in part a reaction against the misogyny present in the art world in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as to celebrate the fortitude and dogged artistic activism that these artists have shared for nearly five decades.”*
Regen Projects’ Spring 2017 show is an extraordinary survey of art from the 1990s.
