    If that link doesn’t work for you, google “Taking on the Role of Gender in Media” and follow the link to today’s NYTimes article.😉
    Fucking log-in filters.
    It’s a review of this exhibit.

    Great stuff – I’d love to see that exhibit. I’ve seen many of the artists’ work and been to some of their lectures and performances. It would be great to see it all at once and with the explication.

    But that has to be one of the stupidest articles I’ve ever read about an art exhibit. Either she was intentionally dumbing it down (which didn’t help to make it more interesting, she just made it seem weirdly dated) or she herself knows next to nothing about that art form, the artists, or feminist art and believes it is dated. “Until now, the established understanding was that deconstructivism was steered by men.” Stupid, stupid, stupid.

      I’d love to as well- road trip!😉
      LOL the article- yeah she was really going for the “this is an important exhibit that corrects a historical inaccuracy” dealio. Your comment made me lolol.

      • Noanodyne Says:

        It’s as if the writer and the curators just woke up yesterday and missed decades of discussion about this.

        Apparently a bunch of people don’t get it. Here’s an article about the exhibition that is the very picture of pomo mindlessness. The author hasn’t seen the exhibition, she manages to get in there that hijabs are liberating for women, and that she has better things to do than worry about whether women still suffer discrimination — that’s so last century don’t you know.

        And yes! road trip!!

      • GallusMag Says:

        My god that article – a review critiquing the exhibition’s introductory blurb without having viewed the work? Wha? – is so sick! lol. The author goes on to provide her bonafides at the bottom- her “dues paying” as a “gallery girl”. Then she talks about her cool tattoos. Freak show. Sad.

    The vid’s were completely lost on me. I hated WW even when it was new. I got a log in for the NYT, but did not make it to the article yet (I think I have to allow cookies for it).

    • Noanodyne Says:

      Cool. Martha seems to get it😉

    • dubsH Says:

      I bet this was translated by a man!
      I didn’t go through all of the subtitles, but here’s one that will make you want to vomit:
      Instead of “the house, the street, and the kitchen are the backdrop to everyday life” they’ve put “The house, the street, and the kitchen are the OPPOSITE of everyday life”!

    In case I wasn’t clear (?), you can access the review and bypass the log-in filter by googling the article directly. kthx.
