Is Body Art now the feminist language? Is the feminist historical survey WACK! now at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA L.A. and scheduled for P.S. 1 next year enough of a reason for "Feminisms" to avoid all art elders in the name of globalism and youth?

  • Sabra
    Let me explode some of the myths about the Sabra. First: Sabra is not "native" or exclusive to Israel it is a world wide cactus.
