Art World Lets Us Down Once Again By Including Only ONE Woman In Major Exhibition

Art World Lets Us Down Once Again By Including Only ONE Woman In Major Exhibition.

In as “progressive” and gender neutral a world that we live in today how, I ask, HOW can the Gagosian really and truly have only selected one woman artist out of 35? The exhibit is titled “The Show Is Over” and all I have to say is that clearly the need for a new contemporary feminism is not. Kim Gordon is the only woman represented in the upcoming abstract art show in London. I can think of many female abstract artists  that could be included— why not Agnes Martin? Lisa Corinne Davis? Frieda Kahlo? or present day working artist Guadulesa Rivera?  

Come on, should not those in the art world be more progressive than THIS!

UPDATE: So I just realized that all of these artists are also white. Come on man, come on! *smh*
