From Andy Warhol to Jasper Johns, Pop art in the 50s and 60s was mainly dominated by men. Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 19581968 gives you a chance to get into a DeLorean, go back in time, and see the work done by women you rarely hear about. The group show features more than 50 works by Chryssa, Niki de Saint Phalle, Rosalyn Drexler, Marisol, Yayoi Kusama, Jann Haworth, Vija Celmins, Lee Lozano, Marjorie Strider, Idelle Weber, and Joyce Wieland, among others. And, of course, pop icons must be in a pop art show, and this one features John Wayne on a wooden horse by Marisol, a photo montage of former first lady Pat Nixon by Martha Rosler, and a collage of Queen Elizabeth sitting alongside her guards by May Wilson. Classic.
