Vancouver Art Gallery – WACK! exhibition (begins October 4, 2008)

First it was CRAZY! now it’s just “WACK!”. The new Vancouver Art Gallery exhibition officially begins tomorrow, October 4th and runs until January 11, 2009.

WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution is the first comprehensive, international survey of a remarkable body of work that emerged from the dynamic relationship between art and feminism between 1965 and 1980, a time in which a majority of feminist activism and art-making occurred across the globe. The exhibition brings together the work of 120 artists to examine the international foundations and impact of feminism on art.

I didn’t go to the members’ opening last night (zzzz) but as soon as I check this one out, highlights will be posted on Modern Mix Vancouver!

    I encourage everyone to check out WACK Nov 25th-Dec 10th especially when there’s an exhibit done with the Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter that my friend Lauren is helping with.

    Flesh Mapping: Vancouver Markets Pacific Women is produced by Rape Relief as part of WACK: Art and the Feminist Revolution at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Gallery Gachet. Nov 25th-Dec 10th, 2008.
