In Alice Wheeler's smart and tight but generous new show of photographs and a video, Women Are Beautiful—named after Garry Winogrand's series but reframing it completely—she's hit a stride. You can hear it in the way she talks, too, about the 60s, old Seattle versus new Seattle, places she calls "Man's Lands," and her subconscious pursuit of green eyes. Wheeler's a rock-hard feminist with a record of being underestimated. It's about to end.
