Arts Bombast: Mary Beth Edelson

Ever a sucker for ’70s-era feminist art, I’ve been getting into Mary Beth Edelson lately. I can’t really get behind some of her new age-y, reclaiming-the-Goddess works, but these cheeky collages depicting female artists in place of “founding fathers” and other glorified male groups are totally my jam right now.

Looking closely at some of the faces in these reappropriated scenes is really fun. More from Edelson here.
