When Feminism Was Fun...

This may come as a shock to anyone under 30, but feminism once had the power to provoke (and no, we're not talking about those heady days when The Vagina Monologues first appeared on the scene). Such is the territory covered by Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution, which spans the years 1965–1980 and opens Sunday at L.A.'s Museum of Contemporary Art. "The name Wack! is meant to be a heavy-hitting, vaguely sexual term," says curator Connie Butler. "All of this art in some way celebrates the body." Especially, we might add, the lower half.The show opens with Polish sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz's Abakan Red, a giant red web that's a less-than-subtle nod to a woman's nether region, while British performer Cosey Fanni Tutti's snapshots graphically document her career as a stripper and porn star. In other words, consider this exhibition the art world equivalent of a romantic comedy in which Cameron Diaz gets naked—there's something for you and your girlfriend. P.S And yes, the reason why feminism get me high because I had to write a paper about Ramona Quimby, Age 8....clearly Beverly Cleary is promoting feminism! Wish I'd been to those vagina monologues though, but having a penis is fine with me, period!
