How feminist artists shook up the art world

A major exhibition of trail-blazing American Feminist art opened July 28 at the Monmouth Museum in Lincroft. "How American Women Artists Invented Postmodernism 1970-1975" will run through Sept. 3 at the museum on the Brookdale Community College campus.

The exhibit focuses on work created by American women artists who were pioneers of Feminist Art and Postmodernism in the crucial five-year time span between 1970-1975.

"We have worked to bring together signature works from the early 1970s by each artist," said Ferris Olin, feminist art historian, librarian and head of the Margery Somers Foster Center at Rutgers' Mabel Smith Douglass Library, the co- curator of the exhibition.
