University of the Arts' Groundbreaking 'Seductive Subversion' Exhibit Receives Strong Reviews
'New York Times,' 'Christian Science Monitor' prominently feature exhibition now running at the Brooklyn Museum
November 30, 2010
"Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968," a groundbreaking exhibition developed and premiered at the University of the Arts' Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery last January and currently running at the Brooklyn Museum, was recently featured in both The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor.
The exhibit received a strong review in the October 14 issue of The New York Times in an article titled "Before the Rebellion, Playful Pop Art Novelty."
The Christian Science Monitor's November 17 article "The Women of Pop Art" summed up the show's concept in its headline: "Long sidelined, women artists slowly win recognition – and museum space."
Featuring more than 50 works by two dozen women artists, "Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968" will run at the Brooklyn Museum through January 9, 2011, then moves on to Tufts University Art Gallery at Aidekman Arts Center January 20 - April 3, 2011.
