This is what feminism looks like?

Roberta Smith reviews the Brooklyn Museum’s “Global Feminisms” exhibition, which inaugurates the Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, in today’s New York Times.

“The false idea is that there really is such a thing as feminist art, as opposed to art that intentionally or by osmosis reflects or is influenced by feminist thought, of which there is plenty. Feminist art is a shorthand phrase that everyone uses, but institutionalizing such an amorphous, subjective qualifier should make us all reconsider.”
