As a warm up screening to our much anticipated Being Ruby Rich season this June, we screen Lynn Hershman Leeson’s era defining documentary !Women Art Revolution, doing exactly what the title says. Through intimate interviews (including B Ruby Rich, The Guerilla Girls, Yoko Ono), art and rarely seen archival film and video footage, !WAR reveals how the Feminist Art Movement fused free speech and politics into an art that radically transformed the culture of our times.
A Club des Femmes and Barbican collaboration, in association with Birkbeck College.
