Misrepresenting these women as discoveries isn’t the only danger that curators and dealers face when handling this material. “These are not new artists; people tend towards revisionism but the work has always been there,” says curator Jenni Sorkin, who wrote one of the in-depth texts for the 2007 MOCA exhibition “WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution” and is co-curator of the upcoming exhibition “Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947-2016” at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. “I think it’s unfortunate that feminist art has this constant reclaim attached to it because then it’s not taken seriously as part of the culture. It’s just something that gets discovered every couple of years.” Sorkin believes that this tendency to “resurface” the material is ultimately a function of the market. The best remedy, perhaps, will be for collectors, curators, and dealers to take personal responsibility for being increasingly open-minded with regards to present and past.
