Photos: At two local galleries, feminism is as urgent as ever
For this week's art review, Westword critic Michael Paglia focused on feminism in two simultaneous shows at Ice Cube Gallery and Pirate: Contemporary Art. And before even analyzing their art, he offered up this apology: "I was wrong. Apparently, the subject of feminist art is as urgent and relevant now as it was back in the '70s, when it first appeared." For his full conclusions, read Paglia's review. In the meantime, continue reading for examples of the art that made him do a mental double-take.
