What is, and what isn’t, feminist art? Reframing Feminism: Visualizing Women, Gender & Sexuality reflects on the relationships among art, activism, and feminist movements through a broad selection of artworks from the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum’s permanent collection. Works by such artists as Jeanne Dunning, Valie Export, Kara Walker, and Andy Warhol, among others, require viewers to reconsider what constitutes a feminist art practice, who makes feminist art, and what role art plays for and within feminist movements. The exhibition poses questions about the position of gendered bodies in public space, as well as the complicated relationships between gender, race, and sexuality and consumer culture and commodification.
