The Female Gaze

In “museum at home” offerings from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, you can watch the late and widely mourned feminist artist Helène Aylon, who died of Covid-19 in April, on birthing and midwifing her paintings; Judy Chicago on being a female artist in a man’s world and on preparing for her “Dinner Party”; Eva Hesse talking about a feminist point of view; and Frida Kahlo talking about herself as a feminist and Chicana icon. sfmoma.org/watch
