I have a new piece up at Guggenheim.org. I was given free reign to choose and write about a few pieces of archival audio that I found particularly timely and interesting; this is the second in that series. The 1973 show Women Choose Women was the first curated by and featuring exclusively women artists. The conversation between Mimi Poser, the Guggenheim’s WYNC radio host, museum director Mario Amaya, and curator/gallerist Sylvia Sleigh is a particularly relevant time capsule for the current state of politics and art.
