If this were a feminist world, the artist Wynne Greenwood once proposed, you'd have to have not only public policies and leaders that prioritized women but also, like, feminist car washes and feminist amusement parks, and what would those look like? The entire world would need to be reimagined. Starting with TV news, Greenwood and fellow artist K8 Hardy have an ongoing series of performances and videos they call New Report, in which they create pointed, funny, layered broadcasts for their fictional feminist TV news station, whose tagline is "Pregnant with Information." In the story line of this installment, called "Artist Unknown" (2006), Greenwood (as anchor Henry Irigaray) and Hardy (as at-large correspondent Henry Stein-Acker-Hill) are on the case of a mysterious painting abandoned in the street and what it has to say about women in contemporary art.
