1.0 out of 5 stars blah 19 Feb. 2015
By Donald J. Trumps Worst Nightmare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The right book if you are seeking a catalogue of women artists with dishwater academic "art analysis". This is The Wrong Book if you are seeking the art itself -it has only thumbnail reproductions of the art.

5.0 out of 5 stars the missing present 28 July 2010
By not a dancing bear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Don't we all somehow wish that our grievances towards an institution would be addressed? We express our grievances, make work that we can only hope at the very least could be a small nick of a push towards the direction of the kind of world that we want (a fair one). We fan a hope, despite unabashed displays (Skin Fruit) of what Clement Greenberg calls "the umbilical cord of gold" until boom there is beautifully conceived evidence (this important book) that an institution (one whose history is inextricable to the history of Modern Art) can not only be capable of change but also a reexamination and then ultimately, a correction of itself. And so with renewed motive force, we keep moving, and push on.
