In 1973 proto-feminist artist Judith Bernstein’s large charcoal drawing of a screw was censored from a show in Philadelphia because it was “too phallic.” That wild, woolly, provocative image is on view in this gathering of some of Bernstein’s seminally political, intensely stylish drawings. Bernstein laughs, points, and ogles the phallus. In Supercock, from 1966, she gives us a dorky flying superman with a supersize schlong. It weighs him down, making him look ridiculous and somewhat monstrous at the same time. Her screw drawings still have presence; a new scrawled wall drawing of her name highlights her strangely sexual-looking initials; backward, of course, they're "BJ." This artist doesn’t let up.
