February 1

Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958-1968 This exhibition, featuring 68 works by 22 artists, examines the impact of women artists on the traditionally male-dominated field of Pop art. In recovering important female artists, the show expands the canon to reflect more accurately the women working internationally during this period. Some of these artists experimented with then-new industrial materials such as Plexiglas, plastics, rubber and neon to create art that responded to the effects of mass production. Others subverted domestic skills they had learned as young girls to create the first “soft sculpture,” using fabrics, plastics and other found materials that deployed a craft aesthetic as high art. Others appropriated from mass culture, including Hollywood film, advertising, publicity photos and commercial publishing to critique emergent popular culture and male fantasies about female desire. Free and open to the public. Opening reception: Feb. 3, 5:30–8 p.m. Aidekman Arts Center, Tisch and Koppelman galleries and Remis Sculpture Court, through April 3. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday until 8 p.m. For information, call 617.627.3518 or visit http://ase.tufts.edu/gallery.
