Documenting a Feminist Past: Art World Critique
January 25–March 27, 2007

This exhibition of material from The Museum of Modern Art Library, the Museum Archives, and the Museum's collection documents feminist critique of art institutions from 1969 to the present. Artists bring a particular sensibility to activism; as these documents show, feminist artists of the late twentieth century mobilized intellect, principle, material skills and, often, considerable wit to create powerful public communications, from printed matter to videos to Happenings. The diverse documentation on view is organized to reflect the movement's focus in five areas—theory and debate, art-historical revisionism, publishing, exhibiting, and actions and interventions—with the broader goal of situating the feminist future in the context of the feminist past.
