Art by women in 2012

valerieblass.jpgThere are three conconcurent exhbitions on right now at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art: Valerie Blass, Ghada Amer, and Wangechi Mutu.

Three powerful female voices, all dealing with issues of the female body, sexuality, and even pornography.

You might be tempted to call it a feminist exhibtion.

Not so fast.

We invited three other prominent women of the Quebec art world into the Cinq à Six studio, to tackle the question of what is the place of l'art au feminin in 2012.

Lesley Johnstone is a curator at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art. She curated the Valerie Blass exhibition.

Bettina Forget is a multimedia artist, blogger, and author of The Belgo Report.

And Line Ouellet is the director of the Musee national des beaux arts in Quebec City
