Feminism is a viewpoint that demands a rethinking of all structural relations in society. Feminism is powerful because it is true.”
—martha rosler

We’re off to the Jewish Museum for a 5 decade career survey of Rosler’s work. This is the last day of the exhibit. The Museum has this to say about their exhibition:

“Martha Rosler is considered one of the strongest and most resolute artistic voices of her generation. She skillfully employs diverse materials to address pressing matters of her time, including war, gender roles, gentrification, inequality, and labor. From her feminist photomontages of the 1960s and 1970s to her large-scale installations, Rosler’s vital work reflects an enduring and passionate vision.

Martha Rosler: Irrespective showcases both well-known and rarely seen selections from more than five decades of work. Installations, photographic series, sculpture, and video represent a practice continually evolving and reacting to the shifting contours of political life. Throughout, Rosler’s work has been characterized by intellectual rigor and sharp wit, along with a sense of urgency directed at social and political issues that remain as relevant and immediate as when they first emerged.”

Following the exhibit we’ll head over to Hummus Kitchen for some delicious veg eats and post exhibit conversation. HK is not a vegan restaurant but there are good vegan options and the food is terrific! Portions are huge and shareable.
