Judith Bernstein’s drawings and paintings are inspired by her early introduction to graffiti during her time at Yale School of Art; as such, her iconic style features expressive line work, graphic images, and a biting sense of humor. Bernstein frequently uses her art as a vehicle for her outspoken feminist and anti-war activism, often provocatively drawing links between the two. Her best-known work features her iconic motif of an anthropomorphized screw, which has become the basis for a number of allegories and visual puns. Bernstein was also a participant in many activist organizations—most famously, the Guerrilla Girls and the Art Workers’ Coalition. In the 1970s she was a founding member of A.I.R. Gallery, the first to be devoted to showing female artists. Recently her work was included in group exhibitions at Hauser & Wirth, London and Zurich, and MoMA PS1. "This year, Judith Bernstein: Hard" was a one-person exhibition at the New Museum; her work was also included in the Whitney’s "Sinister Pop" exhibition; Bernstein’s drawings and onsite mural will be in "Keep Your Timber Limber" at ICA London (title taken from Bernstein’s drawing); and a third solo exhibition at her gallery The Box L.A.
