PITTSBURGH, PA.- The Andy Warhol Museum presents the exhibit The “F” Word starting on Saturday and ending on September 3, 2006. In celebration of the regional marketing initiative, Pittsburgh Roars, The Andy Warhol Museum presents recent work by ten contemporary female artists who have developed unique aesthetic and conceptual strategies to reaffirm the place of women and their voices in visual arts and culture. The artists in this intergenerational group - from women who led the first charge of feminist art in the 1960s and 1970s, to those just emerging on the international scene - each see art as a means to upend and unsettle mainstream ideologies and dominant stereotypes. Some vocalize dissent and others advocate alternatives in relation to expressing individuality, redressing imbalances, encouraging empathy, and broadening definitions. In turn, the work in The “F” Word challenges and examines the connotations embedded in words such as “feminism,” “feminine,” “female” and other labels often affixed to art made by women.
