"This is a prepossessing volume... all contributions raise questions that are indeed pressing, and address them in thought–provoking and, on the whole, insightful ways." The Art Book
From the Back Cover
This thought–provoking book explores the increasing visibility of women s art in Britain, Europe and America. Written by a group of prestigious art historians and critics, it locates contemporary women s art within a matrix of overlapping historical, cultural and post–colonial frameworks.
Artists whose work is considered include Martha Rosler and Kara Walker from North America, Alice Maher from the Republic of Ireland, Lubaina Himid, Christine Borland, Sarah Lucas, Cornelia Parker, Gillian Wearing and Rachel Whiteread from Britain, and the international performance group, moti roti. The book also features specially–commissioned interviews with some of these artists. Diverse media are covered, from sculpture and painting through to photography, installations, video and performance.See all Product description
