Women Pop at Brooklyn Museumhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/museums/women-pop-at-brooklyn-museum/899/
Several artists’ names ring familiar: Faith Ringgold, Niki de Saint Phalle, Martha Rosler, Marisol, Yayoi Kusama. Others less so, but should be repeated until committed to memory. Like Rosalyn Drexler, whose paintings from circa 1963 set pop stars on geometric structures built of bold colors into highly satisfying compositions. Or Joyce Wieland, whose 1964 sculptures of compartmentalized plastic pouches feel like do-it-yourself kits for her dimensional sculpture,Young Woman’s Blues; and Chryssa, whose neon cent and ampersand signs toy with language and commerce, besides being mesmerizing. The show, which runs October 15 through January 9, was organized by the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
