Doin' it in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman's Building, opened at the Ben Maltz Gallery on Oct 1 and has been consistently featured in media attention about the 60 exhibitions in the Getty-sponsored Pacific Standard TIme: Art In L.A. 1945-1980 initiative. Among the mentions in newspapers, magazines, and the blogosphere:
"Doin' It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman's Building" at the Otis College of Art and Design, for instance, would probably be an amen-corner jumble were it not for the time, womanpower and scrutiny the gallery was able to give to wall upon wall, and vitrine upon vitrine, of primary source material from the mid-'70s salad days of the women's movement in the Los Angeles art world.- Peter Plagens, "Laying Claim to its Place in the Sun," Wall St Journal, 10/9
Thus, the exhibit on women’s narratives at Otis College of Art and Design is not simply a showcase of artwork, but a series that ranges from symposiums to spoken word. - Sherin Wing LA's Powerful Past MetropolisMag.com Point of View 10/14

Which one of the PST shows are you most looking forward to?
I'm very excited for the Doin it in Public show. Aside from the great title, it reveals the largely forgotten history of an amazing artist space that was a center for socially engaged practice. - Sue Bell Yank, Writer and Asst Dir of Academic Programs, Hammer Museum
