Acting Like Women: Performance Art and the Woman’s Building is a documentary project directed by Cheri Gaulke that revisits the California feminist art movement of the 1970s and 1980s. In 1970, women artists flocked to California, heading west from all over the country like pioneers of another era. What they discovered – at Fresno State, then CalArts, then downtown Los Angeles – was a place where women were valued. At the time women’s art was rarely exhibited in galleries and museums. Artists from diverse communities organized, creating spaces of their own. The Woman’s Building, a transformed warehouse in downtown Los Angeles, declared itself a “public center for women’s culture.” There women created community, made art from their own experience and in doing so, gave birth to a new kind of art. The Woman’s Building was an incubator for new art forms and practices – feminist performance art, ritual, collaboration, social engagement and media interventions. Feminist performance art redefined form and content, brought art out of the rarified gallery and museum scene  into the streets, diverse communities, and directly into people’s lives.
