Through Sun, Jan. 9: The Brooklyn Museum holds the first major exhibition of women pView Postop artists. Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958–1968, entreats us to consider the subtle and mostly overlooked female influence during the pop era.

More than 20 female artists are on exhibit. Were they overlooked for good reason, or because the art world wasn’t ready for queens of pop? You decide. No matter, The New York Times claims you are bound to leave with, “a mood of exuberant creative optimism that affected countless artists.”

Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958–1968 was organized by Sid Sachs for the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery of The University of the Arts, Philadelphia. The Brooklyn Museum presentation is organized by Catherine Morris, Curator of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum.
