It took 42 years for filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson to make !Women Art Revolution. There’s a good reason for that: She was a leading participant in the Feminist Art Movement and her informative documentary begins in the 1970s. Acquired by Zeitgeist Films, it’s a vigorous mix of interviews, art, film footage and video.
Indicative of its power, the film has also screened at the Toronto and Berlin international film festivals, a rarity. It is truly a must for university arts archives and other artistic institutions.
!Women Art Revolution smartly mixes the dynamics of the emerging feminist movement of the late ’60s with the prevailing male chauvinism of the arts world at the time. Leading museums rarely included female artists; indeed, women’s presence in such galleries was usually limited to their appearance as nude subjects of male paintings and sculpture.
In this comprehensive and vibrant historical fabric, we view the evolution of the movement, from its earnest/angry genesis in the 1970s to its embrace of humor as a weapon against the male-dominated arts establishment during the 1980s. It has always been a richly conflicted progression, indeed, a key ingredient of its power and metamorphosis.
Near its finish, contemporary female artists and curators lend perspective and appreciation for the movement, realizing they are the enriched descendants of such courageous artistic talents as Barbara Kreuger, Cindy Sherman and Shirin Neshat.
An entertaining and revelatory “secret history” of Feminist Art, !Women Art Revolution deftly illuminates this under-explored movement through conversations, observations, archival footage and works of visionary artists, historians, curators and critics. Watch_Women_Art_Revolution_movie_Online
Starting from its roots in 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details major developments in women’s art through the 1970s and explores how the tenacity and courage of these pioneering artists resulted in what is now widely regarded as the most significant art movement of the late 20th century. For more than forty years, filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson (Teknolust, Strange Culture) has collected a plethora of interviews with her contemporaries–and shaped them into an intimate portrayal of their fight to break down barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large.
