"Bad" Feminisms: A Discussion on the Art of Sexual Politics

Dallas Contemporary

In the '60s and '70s, a subset of feminist artists pushed the limits of body art, political correctness, and female sexual agency. Join us at Dallas Contemporary for a conversation about the women who strayed from the established feminist flock and provided essential performative, discursive, and iconographic precedents for a host of contemporary art practices that explore hardcore, sex-positive terrain.
