a film by Lynn Hershman Leeson
Through intimate interviews, art, and rarely seen archival film and video footage, !Women Art Revolution reveals how the Feminist Art Movement fused free speech and politics into an art that radically transformed the art and culture of our times.
We are thrilled to announce that !Women Art Revolution was selected by MOMA New York as one of the 3 best documentaries of the year. It will screen in December and January in New York!

Every year there are films that resonate far beyond a theatrical release—if they manage to find their way to a commercial screen at all—or film festival appearance. Their significance can be attributed to a variety of factors, from structure to subject matter to language, but these films are united in their lasting impact on the cinematic art form. For this recurring series, the Department of Film combs through major studio releases and the top film festivals in the world, selecting influential, innovative films made in the past 12 months that we believe will stand the test of time. Whether bound for awards glory or destined to become a cult classic, each of these films is a contender for lasting historical significance—and any true cinephile will want to catch them on the big screen. This exhibition is organized by the Department of Film.
RAWWAR, an interactive installation that is the expanded cinema component of !W.A.R., recently debuted at the Sundance New Frontier showcase in January. RAWWAR is currently at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery in Minneapolis, MN October 27- December 3, 2011.
