The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art is opening a new exhibit Tuesday to bring attention to the second wave of feminism from the 1960s to 1970s.
The “Voices: Women Artists in the Era of the Second Wave of Feminism” exhibit will feature artwork utilized by female artists to highlight and bring attention to feminist concerns. Nearly all of the works originate from 1969 to 1979.
Museum Registrar and Collections Specialist Theresa Marie Ketterer highlighted a K-State alumna’s nude self portrait from the exhibit.
American artist Jenny Holzer also has pieces on display, some of which created a lot of conversation in New York City and resulted in the artist being arrested for vandalism.
Ketterer also explained that while these pieces may represent the decades-old feminism movement, the topics addressed are still relevant today.
The exhibit will run until December of 2023, with a virtual version of the exhibit opening next month.
