Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

"What image represents 'woman'?" is the query DeMonte (U. of Maryland) posed to women artists in 174 countries, for a traveling "Women of the World" exhibition which opened in June 2000 at White Columns, NY. The one-to-a-page color illustrations showcase art from traditional embroidery and portraits to a steel wool baby vest as protection against warfare. Most works have captions by and/or about the artist. Lacks references.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The last century gave women of many countries a greater opportunity for independence, while for others it offered little relief from age-old oppression. But the recent explosion in communication and information technology has diminished our differences, increased our understanding, and established new avenues for political, social, and artistic discourse. Thus Claudia DeMonte, an artist and world traveler, asked female artists in 174 countries "What image represents 'woman'?" She then invited each artist to create a work of art that expressed her view of the essential quality of woman and assembled their work in a traveling exhibition.

Women of the World presents a global image of the female, c. 2000. Traditional art in ancient media gleefully joins with multimedia constructions. Individually superb, these works of art make an aggregate statement about the continuity of women's accomplishment.
