This group exhibition explores depictions of women and “domestic arts” by women, at the intersection of the intimate and the political.

About

Ranging from portraits of recognizable public icons, to people unknown to the viewer, to abstraction, the works offer different perspectives on feminism and gender at this cultural moment. The artists, who vary widely in conceptual interest, medium, age, place and background, are united by their use of iconographies and materials that embed social critique, theory and direct action deep in their artworks.

The exhibition’s title refers to a well-known, pithy letter written by artist Nancy Spero to critic Lucy Lippard in 1971. It reads, "N Y OCT 29 / DEAR LUCY / THE ENEMIES OF WOMEN'S LIBERATION IN THE ARTS WILL BE CRUSHED. / LOVE (Signed, 'Nancy')".
