Artforum Picks: Every Witch Way but Loose

Dear Ruth, 2015, graphite, vintage cabinet card, glitter, glass, paper, 12 1/2 x 9 1/2″

Meehan’s exhibition is a collision of references, histories, and time. For instance, the piece Dear Ruth reimagines Nancy Spero’s infamous 1971 letter to Lucy Lippard, which stated: “The enemies of women’s liberation in the arts will be crushed.” Meehan once again bends historical acuity by copying the letter exactly but readdressing it to Gordon from Sinatra. “Every Witch Way but Loose” tackles women’s current fight to be treated as equals by illustrating the cyclical nature of the endeavor.- Full review here.
