Ok, so I go back and forth on Women in…series. I don’t like that they’re separated out like some special group. BUT I’m pretty stoked about MOMA’s Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography show up through March 2011. Photography is this weird category that isn’t always included in the art category, and it is a major boy’s club. It can fall into the science category, what with all the math and chemistry, areas that women and girls haven’t been overly represented in.
This show includes over 200 pieces, ranging from Berenice Abbott (huge deal!) to Roni Horn to the prerequisite Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman and Diane Arbus. It also has some Fluxus wallpaper Yoko Ono made called Bottoms, assembled by George Maciunas from a still by her film Film Number 4 (Bottoms). Hehehe.
