    Mining the history of art and pop culture, Deborah Kass creates works that parody and critique standard narratives of postwar art. After Louise Bourgeois, 2010, plays off the spiraling neon light sculptures of Bruce Nauman. Catching our attention with a spectrum of colors, we must work to decipher its message, an altered quotation by Louise Bourgeois with a decidedly feminist message: “A woman has no place in the art world unless she proves over and over again that she won’t be eliminated.”
