It appears feminism has become the victim of its own success. Ironically, the definition of feminism and its political goals are in danger of being forgotten or even falling into disrepute among young women who consider themselves emancipated. This exhibition has invited female artists of the "post-feminist generation" to address their own ambivalence toward the issue of feminism, its outward forms and current connotations.
