Superficial talk
22 July 2015 | by MikeyB1793See all my reviews

Where are the paintings? Where are the sculptures?

It's about the talk. It's about feminism. It's about Civil Right's. It's about "The Movement". It's about politics. It's about the 60's.

It's all superficial. Short 30 second sound bytes from artists. Then on to another sound byte. Doesn't look at anything in any detail. Discusses briefly "The Dinner Party" with some congressional footage – then moves quickly on to another topic lest we become bored.

Avant Garde performance "art" is tossed in to entertain us – lest we become bored.

Nothing on Frieda Kahlo. Nothing on Kiki Smith. Nothing on Rosa Bonheur. Nothing on Camille Claudel. Nothing on Georgia O'Keefe. Nothing on Carole A. Feuerman. Nothing on Mary Pratt...

Kathe Kollwitz only gets a brief sound byte lest we become bored.

Does not mention the National Museum of Women in the Arts (founded in 1981).

Women artists are not just from the U.S.

Women artists didn't just start in the 1960's.
