Sheldon Museum of Art's September First Friday event 5-7 p.m. Sept. 3 celebrates the opening of a new exhibition: Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968.
This is the first major exhibition to feature women pop artists, a genre usually associated with a few American and British men. The exhibition features paintings and sculptures by artists such as Vija Celmins, Rosalyn Drexter, Niki de Saint Phalle, Mariso, Faith Ringgold and Martha Rosler. Much of the artwork has not been shown in four decades.
Accompanying the opening of the exhibition will be a film screening of the documentary: Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968. The 56-minute film is the first to deeply explore the work and lives of women pop artists. The film will screen at 5:30 pm at the Ethel S. Abbott Auditorium.
The exhibition will include Hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. All of the events are free and open to the public.
