Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Selected writings from America's leading feminist art critic.

Synopsis:

This collection features selected writings over two decades from America's leading feminist art critic. It traces her thinking on such topics as the ever-evolving definitions of "women's art", political and activist art, and the contributions of feminist art theory to the politics of identity.

Synopsis:

In the 1970s, Lucy R. Lippard, author of the highly original and popular Mixed Blessings, merged her art-world concerns with those of the then-fledgling women's movement. In a career that spans sixteen books and scores of articles, catalogs, and essays on art, political activism, feminism, and multiculturalism, her engaging and provocative writings have heralded a new way of thinking about art and its role in the feminist movement. This new collection of previously published essays covers more than two decades of Lippard's thinking on the ever-evolving definitions of feminist art, the convergence of high and low art, political and activist art, and the contributions of feminist theory to the politics of identity that infuses the production and exhibition of much of today's fine and popular art. With a new introduction from the author, The Pink Glass Swan brings together selections from two of Lippard's leading works, From the Center: Feminist Essays on Art and Get the Message?: A Decade of Art for Social Change, and numerous other articles written for newspapers, magazines, and art catalogs across the country.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [253]-257) and index.
