2007 has been a year to celebrate feminism - old and new - in the United States. Two major exhibitions, 'Global feminisms: new directions in contemporary art' at the Brooklyn Museum and 'WACK! Art and the feminist revolution' at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles were ambitious surveys of international contemporary art by women, and feminist art from 1960-1985 respectively. Together, the exhibitions and their weighty catalogues seemed to claim that they provided a definitive account of feminist art practice from its inception to the present, as well as to imply that these were the first exhibits to seriously and exhaustively address feminist art and its history.
