Vagina Painting

cropped-vagina_painting1965

“Shigeko Kubota’s l965 “Vagina Painting,” in which she used a brush tacked on to her panties to smear red, menstrual-like paint on a canvas” (Jay 60). Shigeko Kubota performed her Vagina Painting on 4 July 1965 at Cinemateque, East 4th Street New York, during Perpetual Fluxus Festival. This work of art leaves me puzzled. On one hand I feel as though she just really wanted to paint but by the smae token I cannot really figure out the message she is trying to convey with the brush between her legs.
